Rosa rugosa

Big deep-blue pink single flowers with yellow tufted stamens sit atop deep green quilted leaves. The very round bushy clean plants are known for their hardiness and tolerance to salt sea conditions. Fat round bright red hips give a bonus of fall color, providing food for local wildlife. Mostly spring blooming, likes Northern coastal conditions. Only available own-root.
