This vigorous, medium sized rose makes a superb hedging variety. The glossy green foliage, which turns to buttery yellow in autumn, hides thorny stems that would discourage any intruder. From July to September, Rosa rugosa 'Alba' bears fragrant cup-shaped, white flowers which open from pale pink buds. The fragrant flowers are followed by attractive orange-red rosehips which extend the season of interest well into autumn. This useful species shrub rose makes a lovely addition to cottage gardens and wildlife areas. Height and spread: 1.5m (5').

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. Rosehips and petals can be used in making syrups and the petals will add flavour to cold drinks or fruit dishes. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Companion planting: Try growing roses with garlic, chives, thyme or mint to help deter aphids and blackfly.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Plant 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.
More Info
Feed and water rose plants regularly and deadhead faded flowers. When growing roses it is necessary to remove any suckers that arise from the base of the plant, below the graft union. In late summer, begin pruning rugosa roses by removing dead and diseased wood, and any rubbing or damaged branches. Then reduce all stems by up to a third of their length. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant after pruning.
