Camrose is a city in central Alberta, Canada, amid some of the richest farmland in the prairies. It is a relatively small city which originally grew up along a railroad and now grows along Highway 13. Camrose is a scenic community with many parks, leading to its moniker "The Rose City". Camrose offers a relaxed lifestyle with a large population of retirees.
Camrose is often called the "Rose City" due to its large amount of Parkland containing a large number of wild roses. Also, local rose grower, Jerry Twomey, bred and patented the beautiful Camrose Rose to honour his birth place. This elegant tea rose boasts abundant pink blooms and rich green foliage, making it the most stunning flower in our rose beds Developed to withstand the drastic Alberta climate, the Camrose Rose was introduced to the city in 1995. It may be seen on display at the Bill Fowler Centre.
