The new variety of shrub rose, ‘CA 29’, was selected by the Inventors from amongst 444 seedlings derived from a cross made in March 2003 between the female parent, ‘BAIhero’ (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 15,400) and the male parent, ‘Frontenac’ (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 9,210). ‘CA 29’ was selected as a single unique plant in September of 2005.
The name is from a painting of the same name (about 1916) by an influential Canadian landscape painter, Thomas John (Tom) Thomson (1877-1917).
Larry Dyck was the rose breeder at the Morden Experimental Station in 2003.
