This is Rosa rugosa "Roseraie de L'Hay" commonly known as the rugosa rose.




This frost hardy large shrub rose grows to approx 2 metres (6ft) in height; with a spread of approx 2 metres (6ft), but has been known to spread to 7 metres in the wild through the production of underground stems.
A native of Asia this deciduous variety is a great rear of bed/border planting choice.
In autumn you will observe this plants shiny orange-red rose fruits or hips which stand out above autumnal orange tinted and falling leaves.
During the growing season it carries lush green foliage upon very prickly stems, its blooms are heavily scented semi-double crimson flowers which are velvety to the touch.
Give the Rosa rugosa "Roseraie de L'Hay" a position in full sun with the space to grow to its full size and exhibit its wild form.
This low maintenance rose is disease resistant and tolerant of coastal exposure, try planting it as individual specimens or as an impenetrable informal hedge.
