Rosa rugosa and its hybrids are some of the best for tolerating salty conditions and poor garden soil. They particularly do not like wet feet and shade. They thrive in well drained (even sandy) conditions where the soil drains very rapidly. Ideal for hedging and encouraging pollinating insects. These named varieties are tough, disease resistant and some varieties bear double flowers. They can be pruned without fear! All have delicious scent and large red hips in late summer / autumn. 4ft.
