Red Rugosa Rose, Rosa rugosa rubra, Shrub Seeds (Fast, Hardy, Fragrant, Edible)

Rugosa Rose is everything fancier roses tend never to be. It's a hardy, low-maintenance, beautiful shrub known for its crinkly leaves & spiny upright structure. Red Rugosa Rose is a dense, upright, rounded shrub that typically grows 4 to 6 feet tall and 3 to 5 feet wide. It is renowned for its near indestructibility, attractive form, and beautiful, vitamin C-rich hips.

Rugosa Rose features very fragrantly, deep red, single flowers to 3.5 inches across, blooming profusely from late spring to late summer. The blossoms are followed by very large 1-inch orange to red hips in late summer and last all winter. Glossy, leathery, dark green foliage turns attractive shades of yellow, orange, and red in fall.

Rugosa means wrinkled in reference to the appearance of the foliage. The ripe fruits (hips) this plant produces are high in vitamin C and can be made into teas, jams, and jellies. It attracts birds and is great for cutting flowers.
