Deep rosy buds open to large, rich pink double blooms with a moderately spicy fragrance. Our senior horticultural advisor has grown this Rugosa for years and tells us it sets a first big flush of blossoms in June and repeats intermittently throughout the summer. Fall brings a final show with the cooler temperatures. Bred to withstand cold Canadian winters.
Rugosa Roses generally offer repeat bloom, exquisite fragrance, glossy foliage, and outstanding hardiness. Their tolerance for wind, salt, sand, and neglect makes them a superb choice for difficult situations such as seaside gardens. Their colorful hips are a bonus.

Tip: We use Organic Gem® as a foliar feed on Rose bushes in our trial garden and find plants are healthier and perform better throughout the season.
