ROSA

The rose is the queen of flowers, the most loved and widely planted shrub in all temperate parts of the world. More than 14,000 varieties are grown. Although mostly deciduous, roses can be evergreen in mild climates. Their stems, sometimes quite prickly, may be erect, arching, trailing, or scrambling. Leaves are divided into three, five, or seven leaflets, usually with toothed margins.

Rosa rugosa

From northern China, Siberia, Korea, Japan. This vigorous, deciduous shrub has prickly stems and wonderfully fragrant flowers. To 3–6 ft. tall and wide. Glossy bright green leaves have distinctive heavy veining that gives them a crinkled appearance. Flowers are 3–4 in. across and, in the many varieties, range from single to double and from pure white and creamy yellow through pink to deep purplish red. Blooms, which come in spring, summer, and early fall, are followed by big, bright red, tomato-shaped hips.
