Rosa Rugosa Alba is a stunning variety of rose that is also known as the Apple Rose, Ramanas Rose or Saltspray Rose. They are a great resilient choice for a flowering hedge as they are an effective security barrier due to its thorny stems and dense habit that could deter intruders. They grow well when planted in full sun with well-drained soil although they can tolerate poorer soil and due to their dense habit they can make a great border if planted in coastal gardens as they have been known to cope in harsher conditions such as Russia and Japan. Rosa Rugosa Alba produce brilliant white fragrant blooms that stand against dark green foliage. This spectacular variety provides the largest seed pod of any wild rose. Similar in look and size to a cherry tomato, these hips are a great source of food for wildlife including birds. This charming Rose bush can easily be managed with trimming and grows to a mature height of 2m, with a spread of 1.2m. They flower from June to September. We recommend that Rosa Rugosa are planted 60-70cm apart. Supplied as two year old 40-60cm loose rooted plants.
