    Description

Rosa rugosa - Japanese Rose

This is a listing for a pack of 50 seeds.

Rosa rugosa is a deciduous shrubby rose, with numerous stiffly held stems, suckering from the base.  It is an excellent hedging species with interest throughout the growing season from the fresh green leaves, the scented flowers borne in summer, to the huge red hips it produces in the autumn.  Whilst not strictly speaking a repeat flowering rose, it has a very long flowering season and it is often possible to see flowers and hips on the same plants.  Originally from Japan, China and Korea it has been cultivated for 1000s of years where it is used for its scented petals for Potpourri and flavourings.  The hips are edible.  It is extremely attractive to wildlife, encouraging insects to the flowers and later birds  and other animals will eat the hips.

It grows to 1.5 metres or more and will spread to the same distance, although in time it will produce new plants from suckers on the roots.  It prefers a location in full sun with a free draining soil, though it will grow in all locations except deep shade and very waterlogged soils.  It is one of the most disease resistant roses there is and is used by growers and hybridisers to introduce these traits into their breeding lines. As a deciduous hedge it has few rivals forming dense thickets of stems.
