( Hedgehog Rose )
|Rugosa is a hardy, dense species rose producing cupped, single, scented, violet-carmine-red flowers, showing yellow stamens, with very thorny stems and wrinkled, leathery, dark green leaves. Blooms are followed by tomato-shaped orange-red hips. Great as a hedge.
In general, roses are a large group of flowering shrubs, most with showy flowers that are single-petalled to fully double-petalled. Leaves are typically medium to dark green, glossy, and ovate, with finely toothed edges. Vary in size from 1/2 inch to 6 inches, five petals to more than 30, and in nearly every color. Often the flowers are very fragrant.
Most varieties grow on long canes that sometimes climb. Unfortunately, this favorite plant is quite susceptible to a variety of diseases and pests, many of which can be controlled with good cultural practices.
Important Info : Known as Hedgehog Rose, Japanese Rose, Ramanas Rose, Sea Tomato Rose.
