'Emily Carr' originated from a controlled cross between a rose line which resulted from [(Lammert's selection x 'Morden Cardinette') x 'Morden Cardinette'] and variety 'Cuthbert Grant'. The cross was conducted by the breeder, Dr. Lynn Collicutt, in 1982 at the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada research station in Morden, Manitoba, Canada. Over a five year period, vegetatively propagated plants of 'Emily Carr' were observed in field and potted culture in different climatic regions and in different Canadian provinces
