Rosa Rugosa

Plants we like:
Rosa Rugosa

This is not your typical high-maintenance hybrid rose. The rugosa rose is a drought tolerant shrub that is loaded with white, pink or red flowers in the summer. Large rose hips appear in the fall that will hang on all winter long, providing food for birds. They send out runners, so only plant in an area where they can spread.
