Want to grow your own edible, vitamin-rich, rosehips? Rosa Rugosa is what you need! The “hippie rose” may not have the bell bottoms but she’s got the hips! If you’ve ever wanted a sweet, fragrant rose but failed due to disease pressure and fungus, this resistant rose is for you. The wonderfully fragrant white roses bloom all summer long into October-November. Soon the flowers give way to orange-red fruits (rosehips) about nickel-size. These can be cooked into jams, dehydrated into tea blends, or nibbled on fresh when very ripe. They have extreme levels of vitamin-C. Easy to grow and establishes very rapidly. You’ll be amazed how easy it grows. Disease-free.
Uses: Vitamin-C rich fruits for tea or jams, lovely blooms for pollinators, wildlife shelter, erosion prevention. Makes a nice cover too for privacy.
Resistant to: most rose diseases. Watch out for Japanese beetles in mid-summer.
Plant Size: 1-2′ tall bare-root shrub.
