Rosa rugosa is a species of wild rose. It typically has deep green, wrinkled, and textured leaves. Its flowers are single or semi-double, with a vibrant pink to white colour with a pleasant fragrance. It is extremely hardy and tolerates most soil types. They are known for their ability to thrive in coastal areas with salty air. The plant produces large, colourful, and edible rose hips that can be used to make jams, jellies, teas, and other culinary products. They are also attractive to birds and wildlife. Often used as a hedge or in landscaping to create natural barriers due to its dense growth and thorny stems.

Using bareroot specimens is a cost-effective alternative to pot grown plants and allows the plants to establish their root systems before the growing season starts.

This is a BARE ROOT plant which can be planted during dormant months, usually November until March. Dispatch date varies from year to year as plant can only be lifted when dormant. This plant has exposed roots and must be planted once received.
