Introducing the Rosa rugosa 'Alba' White Rugosa Rose

Experience the beauty and benefits of the Rosa rugosa 'Alba' White Rugosa Rose. This exquisite rose species is native to eastern Asia and thrives in coastal regions with its natural habitat on sand dunes. Known for its therapeutic properties, the leaves of this rose are used to treat fevers, while the flowers promote blood circulation and aid in digestion. Additionally, the root is used to alleviate coughs.

In addition to its medicinal uses, the Rosa rugosa 'Alba' is rich in vitamins and minerals, particularly vitamins A, C, and E, flavonoids, and other bio-active compounds. This makes it an excellent choice for those looking to incorporate nutritious plants into their diet. Studies are also being conducted to determine its potential in reducing the incidence of cancer and halting its growth.

This heirloom shrub has been cultivated for centuries and is highly regarded by esteemed organizations such as the American Rose Society, which rates it among the top roses. It has also received the Royal Horticultural Society's prestigious Award of Garden Merit.

The Rosa rugosa 'Alba' blooms primarily in spring, taking center stage with its single white flowers measuring up to four inches across. The blooms continue sporadically throughout the autumn season, ensuring a prolonged display of natural beauty. The rose hips, which are large, edible, and decorative, turn pink in July and ripen to a vibrant orange by August. They can be harvested for jellies or left on the branches to provide colorful accents well into winter.

While the Rosa rugosa 'Alba' is sun-hardy and thrives in coastal conditions, it is less heat-resistant, making it best suited for temperate maritime climates. It is an ideal choice for gardens in the coastal Northwest or around Puget Sound. Its hardiness is evident as it can flourish even in USDA zone 2, reaching heights of up to six or seven feet.
