Rosa rugosa - Rugosa Rose

Rosa rugosa - Japanese Rose

This hardy flowering Rose will grow where others will not. Rosa rugosa is considered a frontline coastal plant taking extreme coastal exposure. It makes a spiny deciduous bush with a suckering habit and creates a dense hedge quickly. Rosa rugosa has lovely soft pink, fragrant flowers in Spring that are followed by large edible Rosehips and the foliage turns shades of yellow and gold in a good Autumn.
A hard clipping every year keeps the hedge fresh and helps it to produces more flowers.
It does not like waterlogged sites and prefers it on the slightly acidic side, but saying that, you could find a Rosa rugosa growing anywhere.
You will need to cut out any suckers that pop up alongside the hedge to keep it in check.
