Rosa 7-10' x 9-10' R. glauca x R. rugosa. Ag Canada, 1923.
One of the tallest freestanding roses—almost more like a tree than a bush. Spreading suckering purple-red stems eventually become thick trunks that support overhead arching branches of flowers. Clusters of single pale pink blooms contrast beautifully against the purplish glaucous foliage. Bob Osborne at Corn Hill Nursery says that “in bloom it is simply breathtaking.”
Use for erosion control or hedges where height is desired. Vigorous. Give it plenty of space. Z2. (9-18" bare-root plants)
