Rosa Rugosa

Compact, Loaded with Blossoms

  • Very cold hardy
  • Excellent for flowering hedge or privacy screen
  • Thrives in poor soils
Clusters of rose-pink flowers add cheery color and fragrance to the garden throughout the summer, and its dark green foliage turns a fiery red in the fall. Because Rosa Rugosa forms an almost impenetrable hedge, it's often planted as a flowering hedge or privacy screen or used for erosion control. It's very cold hardy and easy to grow—and even thrives in poor soils. In addition to its attractive flowers, this shrub also produces scarlet hips that can be used in jams and jellies. Rosa Rugosa attracts birds and butterflies. It has excellent disease resistance. Zones 2-7
