Comments There are lots of great mauve rugosa cultivars. That this one is so widely available suggests that it is a good one to consider. Not all rugosas present hips concurrently with flowers. When they do as this one does, it is quite a treat. Furthermore, High Country Roses lists this as one of the most fragrant they sell. Its frame is a little smaller than that of some rugosas, so it will fit into a smaller garden. Foliage has a bright yellow autumn color which can occur concurrently with flowers and fruits for a riot of color.
