The Pink Ramanas Rose or Rosa rugosa 'Rubra' Pink makes a great thorny hedge. The pretty pink, bee friendly flowers of Rosa rugosa turn to large rose hips adding autumnal interest.
Rosa rugosa 'Rubra' is a wild rose which produces highly fragrant pink flowers in mid-summer. These attractive flowers turn to large rose hips that stand out boldly against green foliage. The autumn foliage of a Rosa rugosa 'Rubra' hedge is butter yellow.
This prickly shrub makes a useful intruder deterrent and can be mixed with other plants to add a prickly, rambling element. Grown alone, the Pink Ramanas Rose creates a wildlife friendly, bushy, informal hedge. A sunny site will produce the best blooms in your Rosa rugosa hedge though shade can be tolerated.
Try mixing your Rosa rugosa 'Rubra' hedge with the White wild rose (Rosa rugosa 'Alba').
