Rose, Rugosa (Rosa rugosa) potted bush, quart size, organic

(4 customer reviews)

$10.00

Family:  Rose (Rosaceae)

Hardy to Zones 2 to 9

Native to E. Asia, as far north as Siberia.  Tough, upright, thorny bushes useful in shelterbelts and hedges. These are not particular about their growing location or conditions, but sun, acidic soil and regular watering will produce monumental specimens.  The rugosa rose bears many small, sweetly aromatic, deep pink blossoms that give way to hefty hips.  Tea herb.  Source of pectin and vitamin C.  Prune back in fall.  Space plants 4 feet apart.

Quart-size potted plant, Certified Organically Grown

    Outstanding in the blistering Sonoran heat

    This rose, widely known in Maine as the ‘Beach rose,’ turns out to be an ace in the desert as well. Out of thirty different rose cultivars I trialled last year in Phoenix (9b), this was both the most fragrant and the only one to bloom in the ‘dog days’ of summer, when most other plants are too busy fighting transpiration to grow much, let alone blossom. Marvelous rugose foliage. Deep pink blooms suggest ‘rubra’ selection. Good golden autumn color. Overall, positively remarkable performance in one of the USA’s harshest climates.
