In my garden: This is the first rugosa I have ever bought, somehow the simple flower form and the rugosa leaves do not have the same appeal as more modern varieties. But the colour of this rose was just irresistible (pictures somehow do not do it full justice!), so I made an exception to my “no rugosa” rule. Boy I am glad I did! It is now late September and it is healthy and still blooming beautifully.
