Highly fragrant, single, magenta-red roses don the branches of the red rugosa rose. Flowering can occur all season but is most prolific in the first flush of spring. The rugose leaves of this tough shrub rose are deep green and moderately resistant to fungal disease. Very large pomegranate-like hips of tomato red grace the branch tips later in the season. This was originally distinguished as the naturally occurring variety rubra but has been in cultivation so long it is now distinguished as a cultivated variety. It has been in cultivation since the mid-19th-century.Cold hardy, beautiful and tough, rugosa rose is a dense, thorny shrub rose native to eastern Asia. It is admired for its beautiful flowers and fruits as well as its resiliency to cold, high winds, ocean salt and drought. It has been introduced to North America and has naturalized across a large area of the northeast and Alaska.The canes of rugosa rose are thickly covered with small, sharp thorns and compound rosaceous leaves with coarse, green leaflets that turn yellowish gold or bronzy shades in fall. Strongly fragrant, single, pink flowers with yellow stamens appear from early summer through the end of the growing season. White and deep pink flowered variants are also available. Once pollinated by bees and other insects, large, conspicuous, globose rose-hips follow. These turn bright orangish-red and are edible. In fact, they are rich in vitamin C and good for making rose hip jam. Plant as a large accent shrub in the mixed border or cottage garden, or use as attractive flowering hedge.
