Rugosa Roses

Once-flowering varieties are indicated thus (#), and cutting grown varieties like so (o/r). Roses proprietary to us are indicated thus (p). Australian-raised or discovered roses are marked thus (*). Varieties preceded by an asterisk (+) are sold out for this season.

Rugosa RosesWe have separated these wonderful, highly desirable shrubs into a section of their own, as they are both heritage and modern. They are all tough, disease resistant, prickly shrubs with, in most cases, distinct shiny, deeply veined foliage. Many produce a good show of orange red, tomato-shaped hips.
