Rugosa Rose, Pink

Ah, yes……….. the perfection of a rose in mid-summer. The sweet fragrance emitted from perfectly formed petals is why this is the flower of choice for many.
But, to obtain the perfect rose one needs to have the perfect soil, a perfect watering regimen, and a lot of time. For those of you who don’t fall into this category, consider the species Rosa rugosa. It is not as neat and upright the hybrid teas, and the flower petals tend to go helter-skelter. It sometimes has a kind of shaggy, unkempt look about it. That’s what gives this plant its character. Named for the wrinkled (rugose) surface of its glossy green leaves, this rose is a charmer that can soften and naturalize any area.

Developed by the USDA, ‘Sandy’ Rugosa Rose was developed from a cross of 12 superior strains and selected from an assembly of 48 total seed accessions. These 12 strains were selected for their superior seedling vigor, survival, growth rate, foliage abundance, high level of insect and disease resistance, and good fruit production. Sandy has been field tested at sand dune locations from North Carolina to Massachusetts with good success.  While the species Rosa rugosa is commonly found growing within USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 3b-8b, the cultivar Sandy is presently being recommended for use within zones 5-8b.
