The White Ramanus Rose or Rosa rugosa 'Alba' White produces large fragrant white flowers with golden yellow centres during the summer and boasts big red rose hips and butter yellow autumn colour.
Fragrant white flowers stand proudly against green foliage that turns buttery yellow. The red rose hips are an attractive feature that makes this prickly shrub popular for garden and natural hedging.
Rosa rugosa 'Alba' has a bushy growth habit and is best suited to informal settings or combining with other shrubs to add a thorny element to a hedge. The spikes of this rambling hedge make it a great intruder deterrent.
Try combining with the Pink Ramanus Rose (Rosa rugosa) or other native hedging plants for a mixed hedge.
