Rugosa

Search Rugosa
The Rugosa Rose is native to Japan, D.O.B. unknown. Introduced to Europe in the late 1700's, the Rugosa hybrids are prized for ease of cultivation, large fragrant blooms and large highly ornamental hips which are full of Vitamin C. Rugosa roses will tolerate salt laden winds, extremes of heat and cold and are so robust that in some countries they are used for hedging on farms and barrier planting on motorways! Talk about tough. Rugosa roses are also used for Standard Rose Root-stocks and will quickly take over if the grafted rose is neglected or weak. It is important to note though, the one thing they don't particularly tolerate, is modern chemical spray as it damages the foliage but as these roses are disease resistant this is seldom a problem.
