ROSES - Wild RUGOSA
These are rugged, disease-resistant, self-rooted roses that can easily withstand Canada's harshest climates. They make for a very colourful and fragrant hedge and nest area for thicket birds. We have selected this Taylor Rugosa rose as it produces the largest edible rosehips we have ever observed......and these rose hips can be used to make jams, jellies, teas, etc. The Vitamin C content of rose hips is 10 times that of an orange and are considered to be very helpful in maintaining a healthy heart. A great alternative to planting the more fragile "tea" roses that dominate the flower marketplace today.
