Let the warming magenta-pink flowers of Rose Rugosa 'Rubra' brighten up your garden. From July through to September this vigorous red Japanese rose bears cup-shaped flowers, that boast an alluring fragrance. Come autumn, the lush green foliage and fragrant blooms give way to a captivating display of buttery yellow foliage and scarlet rosehips - proving that it's never too late for seasonal colour. Rosa Rugosa's thorny stems make it a perfect choice for those looking for a thorny barrier or boundary hedge. Height and spread: 1.5m (5').

Culinary information: Some parts of these flowers are edible. Rosehips and petals can be used in making syrups and the petals will add flavour to cold drinks or fruit dishes. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Flowering Months
Feed and water roses regularly. Deadhead faded flowers. In autumn apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant. In winter, begin pruning shrub roses by removing dead and diseased wood, and any rubbing or damaged branches. Then reduce the stems lightly by no more than a third. Remaining side shoots should be reduced to two buds.
When growing roses, choose a position in fertile well drained soil in full sun. Roses are greedy plants so add a small handful of granular fertiliser and mix some well rotted manure or compost to the soil prior to planting.
