Rugosa rose is the ultimate in carefree Roses. It’s true! This is a vigorous species that requires little upkeep and has absolutely no pests or diseases to worry about. The papery, single petaled Roses are a medium pink color with yellow stamens. They open up throughout the whole summer, even into the fall, while forming the biggest rose hips of any species. Birds can’t help but snack on these vitamin C-rich hips all winter. Butterflies, bees and Hummingbirds are attracted to the sweet nectar.

Unlike hybrid roses, Rugosa is great for wildlife hedges and will quickly grow in even the worst soil. The raspberry-like canes make dense thickets to provide shelter and nesting areas for birds and other small wildlife. Tolerant of salt spray and windy sites, this is one tough beauty.

Rugosa Rose Care

Rugosa Rose is a native to Eastern Asia, Japan and Southeastern Siberia. It will grow in a wide range of soil textures and pH ranges. Rugosa just needs adequate water for establishing. As it matures, Rugosas become very drought tolerant. The very spiny stems help to keep most deer and rabbits from making a meal of the tasty flowers. Full sun is the best position, but Rugosa Rose will tolerate light shade and partial sun.

This deciduous shrub grows by suckers from the base, much like a raspberry does. Prune out the dead canes late in the winter while the leaves are gone. Pruning to control height can be done then as well. Fertilizing is rarely needed for Rugosas. A mulch of organic compost or leaves in the fall will help the surrounding soil retain moisture.

Rugosa Rose Spacing

Roses generally need quite a lot of air circulation to help keep diseases away. Rugosa roses make a robust wildlife hedge, since the usual diseases do not affect them. With a height of 3-4 feet and a mature width of 5-7 feet, Rugosa roses should be spaced 5 feet apart when creating a hedge.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
