Rugosa Rose Organic Potted Plant 2 gallon size
The rugosa rose is a native of Asia, but is likely the most adaptable rose species ever introduced to the North America. Rarely troubled by the foliage issues facing other roses, our wild-type rugosas grow with deep green foliage to about 5-6 feet tall if unpruned. Flowers are in early summer and are a bright pink (single flowers with 5 petals) with intense rose fragrance. Late summer sees the rose hips appear, and they are large and easy to collect, of a bright orange to red color. I do very little with the rugosas growing on our farm and property. They are a nice addition to the edible landscape. I never spray them for any reason, so they are very care free. If you like the signature fragrance of old fashioned roses, bright rose hips, and a non-stop shrub, the rugosa is your plant. Hardy in USDA zones 3-9.
