Features

Hybrid Rugosa rose with a compact habit and very dark green foliage. Flowers are white, semi-double, 3 inch wide (petal count 17-25). Flowers have clove fragrance. During cool weather, flowers are tinted with pink.

Culture

Full sun, well-drained soil. Prune by the renewal method removing one-third of the oldest canes to the soil line as needed to keep the shrub open and new canes in production. Prune the stem back to a branch angle (a process called heading back) as needed to reduce height and width.

Notes

Nice compact rugosa with extreme disease resistance and winter hardiness.  Member of the Canadian Explorer rose series.
