Wasagaming Rose


Wasagaming Rose

Rosa spp. 5-6' x same. (R. rugosa x R. acicularis) x Grüss an Teplitz. Skinner, Manitoba, 1939. Rose of the year in 2023 at Corn Hill Nursery in New Brunswick. We see why! Deep pink buds open to double lilac-lavender-rosy blooms that are fragrant, lush and prolific. In the muted light of early morning, the color has a soft, diaphanous quality that lends an ethereality to the blossom. Very cold-hardy rounded vigorous shrub will rebloom and readily sucker. Rose expert Suzanne Verrier called it “a standout among hundreds of other roses.” The name refers to a town inside of the Riding Mountain National Park in Manitoba and is derived from an Anishinaabe phrase washagama saageygun, which translates as ‘clear water lake.’ Tolerates partial shade. Z2. Indigenous Royalties.

Additional Information

Rosa Rugosa Hybrids

We no longer offer straight Rosa rugosa seedlings. Many wonderful old and new roses carry rugosa in their parentage (sometimes of an undetermined amount), and we have not observed these hybrids to be harmful to the environment. However the State of Maine legally requires us to include this statement: “R. rugosa: Invasive species, harmful to the environment. Do not plant in coastal environments, especially on or near sand dunes. Alternatives: Virginia rose, bayberry, red chokeberry, and beach plum.”
