As an addition to a security fence, or to help to add a touch of colour to any other type of hedging, the Red Leafed Rose is an ideal candidate. Capable of standing on its own and forming a dense thicket of thorns and purple/grey leaves and pink flowers, Rosa glauca R. Rubrifolia will also scramble through other hedging plants to add density as well. A very tough and easy to grow plant, it will be appreciated by wildlife for its hips in autumn and by you for it's natural beauty whilst forming an effective boundary. Supplied as 50 - 80cm bareroots (20 - 31") Height: 250cm (98'). Spread: 250cm (98'). Planting Distance: 50cm (20"). (3 plants per metre for a single line hedge).

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.

How to Grow
Plant bareroot roses at the earliest opportunity following delivery. To avoid the risk from the build-up of harmful soil organisms and disease, choose an open position in full sun that has not been planted with roses in recent years. Roses enjoy a rich, fertile, well drained soil. Dig in plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil prior to planting roses and add a small handful of granular fertiliser to the planting hole.

These plants are lifted from the nursery field when dormant, and sent to you in late autumn or spring for planting. They often look dead on arrival, but they are just resting in the dormant period and will establish quickly for a strong start in the garden come spring. Set out in prepared soil in holes wide enough and deep enough to lay out the roots. Tread down the planting soil to knock out air pockets. Water well to settle. Apply a mulch to protect roots from cold temperatures. If conditions prevent immediate planting, set roughly into loose soil or a pot of compost (‘heeling in’) to protect the roots. Set these at the same level as they were in the nursery field – you should see a soil line at the base of the stem. Stake trees, taller shrubs and roses to prevent root disturbance.

More Info
Feed and water rose plants regularly .In late summer, begin pruning rugosa roses by removing dead and diseased wood, and any rubbing or damaged branches. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant after pruning.
