Rosa rugosa Seaside Swirl™ Pink

Baby pink flowers adorn this tough, easy to grow selection of rugosa rose. Don't be fooled by its dainty look. this is one amazingly easy rose.

Rugosa Roses are known for their incredible hardiness and can be relied upon to provide color and interest in harsh landscapes where dry soils, strong winds, and salt spray prevails. In late spring captivating flowers pull you in with their musky aroma and continue to bloom in profusion through summer. As the flowers fade, orange-red hips form, adding yet another element of surprise. Extremely disease resistant – especially when grown in full sun - these Roses will keep pollinators busy, attracting insects, butterflies, and birds through their long season of flower.

Tough and easy to care for, Seaside Swirl™ Roses make the perfect addition to cottage gardens, coastal roadways, and slopes.

More compact than a typical rugosa, soft, crepe paper pink flowers are brightened by yellow stamens. Green, wrinkled leaves add a compelling touch with texture seldom seen in Roses. Seaside Swirl™ Pink makes a great, easy-care option for tough growing conditions. Tolerant of sea spray and road salt, its intense fragrance, and beautiful flowers are just a few of the wonderful traits that make this variety a must. In late summer, large, red-orange hips follow the flowers, just about the time leaves turn brilliant yellow.
