General description

Named for Samuel de Champlain, the French navigator who mapped much of North America and also discovered Lake Champlain, this Hybrid Kordesii was bred by Svedja and introduced in 1973. It is a Shrub rose which can be expected to grow to 3.5 or 4 feet high and wide in most climates.
The clusters of beautiful red roses produced by this shrub are mildly fragrant.

Champlain is an easy-to-grow rose bush. It is not bothered by frigid winters or hot, steamy summers. Its disease resistance, however, is variable.

In some climates and in some years it will enjoy perfect health. In others, it can be somewhat mildew prone.
