Rosa rugosa 'Roseraie de l'Hay'

Plant details

A large, dense rose with a strong scent and a powerful show of open, wine-purple flowers in midsummer set against the fresh green leaves. It makes a terrific eye-catcher at the back of the border or in its own small island bed, though it also makes a very effective summer hedge - when four or five are grown in a row - with its thorny stems. It's disease-free, tolerates poor conditions, and is probably the best rugosa available. When growing it with other rugosas, try the contrasting white R. rugosa 'Alba', both of which have been given the Award of Garden Merit (AGM) by the Royal Horticultural Society, and the pink 'Sarah van Fleet'.
