Are there hedge and miniature roses that will survive in Canadian zone 3b
(Winnipeg, Manitoba)?

John - I'm a relative newbie, too, but have come across a couple ideas
   during my reading.  First, I think that the hybrid rugosas, as a group,
   are reputed to be impressively hardy.  A number form good hedges, and
   some have suggested that they are hardy almost into zone 2 (!).
   There are a few "sister" roses named "Morden _____," which are Canada-
   bred and therefore hardy.  I'm not sure if they're considered to belong
   in the rugosa group.

   Can't help you on miniatures, except to point you to Nor'east MIniature
   Roses. They are in Massachusetts, which is not quite Manitoba cold,
   but they might be able to answer your questions.  You can find their
   number on-line, by following links from the ARS homepage.
