The delicate-looking and captivating flowers of the White Rugosa Rosa contrast the hardy nature of this perennial. Pure white petals with a slight ruffle surround yellow stamens, giving off a sweet-smelling fragrance. The lovely blooms grow on thorny stems with dark green foliage. Flowers emerge in the spring, and this plant will continue to bloom throughout the growing season, although the first flush of flowers is the most prolific. The Rosa rugosa Alba is easy to maintain and can handle challenging conditions, like sand and salt, making it ideal for beachfront plantings.

This plant has a sprawling, multi-branched habit and reaches about 3 to 4 feet tall. Plant this beguiling beauty along a foundation wall or border to create a flowering hedge. Feature as a focal point in a bed or mass planting. Try to locate this shrub in a low-traffic area due to the thorns. The White Rugosa Rosa is a perennial in USDA zones 2 through 8. 

White Rugosa Rose Care

Select a spot with partial shade to full sun as the White Rugosa Rosa needs at least 4 to 6 hours of light. Expect more blooms when the plant receives higher levels of light. Soil should have a 5.6 to 6.5 pH and high organic content while allowing for drainage, although this plant is forgiving when grown in poor quality soil. Water this shrub well through the first growing season, and after the plant is established, water weekly or when the top few inches of soil are dry. Feed this plant using a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the spring, but it is not necessary to fertilize if grown in rich soil. 

Prune the plant in the spring to encourage new growth. White Rugosa Rosa is a large plant, and you can let it do its thing with minimal pruning, only removing damaged or old growth or suckers. This shrub also responds well to more involved pruning to maintain a specific size.

White Rugosa Rose Spacing

This sizable upright plant will grow 3 to 4 feet tall and 5 to 7 feet wide. Create a hedge or dense planting by spacing shrubs 4 to 6 feet apart.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

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.
