Hedge rose, Rogusa?

dolzadell(7)May 7, 2012

I am looking for some information about a hedge rose, I believe is spelled Rogusa? I have a semi shaded area and want a barrier between me and a neighbors ugly car port.

If anyone has these in their yard with pics I would sure appreciate seeing them so I can see what I will eventually have or if anyone has experienced a problem or benefit let me know.

Thanks everyone,

Rugosa roses are good for part shade, and most of them will make nice big hips. They have LOTS of thorns, which in your case might be a good thing.

There are many kinds of rugosas. Here are some examples:
Hansa rugosa rose
Blanc Double de Coubert rose
Jens Munk rose

Rugosa roses grow great where I live, in the Pacific Northwest, but I hear they don't do so well in some parts of the country. Where do you live?
