Plant details

Holder of the Royal Horticultural Society's prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM), Rosa 'Fru Dagmar Hastrup' is a sturdy rugosa rose, which makes a lovely specimen plant or hedge. Clover-scented, light pink flowers appear throughout summer, followed by bright red hips in autumn.

For best results grow Rosa 'Fru Dagmar Hastrup' in moist but well-drained soil, in full sun. As a shrub rose, it's best pruned in late summer, after flowering has finished. Prune most stems lightly. To encourage young, vigorous growth, cut back a few of the oldest stems each year.
