15 - 20cm Rosa rugosa 'Hansa' | 9cm Pot

A wildlife friendly shrub rose, perfect for embracing some richer colours

First bred in 1865, this Rugosa Rose boasts luxurious magenta blooms which release a fragrance considered reminiscent of a classic rose! These large, blousy flowers stand out beautifully against their matte, emerald green foliage, and as such, this variety is ideal for enriching a border with some vibrant colour. Come autumn, rose hips will emerge in abundance; helping extend this plant's season of interest. In time, this variety can reach five feet tall, why not grow it into a wildlife friendly hedge?

The key is to regularly water newly-planted plants, at least bimonthly for two months. It is also important to ensure adequate spacing between bushes, which is determined by a rose's eventual height and spread.

Bare root and containerised plants have differing planting requirements. With bare root, it is important to soak the roots in water for up to two hours before planting, and with containerised plants, you should drench their rootball. For bare root plants, it is also beneficial to prune any woody roots back a few inches, and if you have a containerised plant, you should free any spiralized roots that are growing around the rootball's circumference. When planting, bare root plants need a graft point that is above the soil, but for containerised plants, it is better to have their pot sitting no less than an inch below the ground.

Bare root and containerised plants also share some of their planting needs; dig a hole twice the radius of the rootball, and fill the hole with a mix of compost and garden soil. After this, add fertiliser and mycorrhizal fungi. After providing a generous watering, you can finish with a later of mulch, but keep it from touching your plant's stems.

Apply fertiliser and replace decomposed mulch come spring. Collect fallen leaves in autumn.

Your Rugosa Rose will be dispatched directly from our trusted nursery. This means that you will receive a nursery fresh plant which was on the growing table one day, and at your door shortly after. Your plant will be carefully packaged into a specially designed, extra thick cardboard box. This will hold the plant securely in place, and is sent via a delicate courier network to prevent any chance of damage in transit.

Rose plants are easy to grow. Your plant's growth and output will likely be fine providing you followed our planting and care instructions. Below we address some common queries:

  • Hardiness: Modern roses are produced from a amalgamation of rose species - many of which that are from far colder regions than the UK - and are fully hardy.
  • Position: Rose plants benefit from being planted in full sun. Planting your plant in a sheltered spot will allow the plant to put more resources into flowering.
  • Soil Types: Soil types are best ignored and remain an unwelcome confusion. Every plant will adapt to its conditions. Having said that, less than ideal conditions will reduce growth. Waterlogged soils will starve your plant of oxygen, which plays a key role in photosynthesis, cause its roots to rot and create the perfect environment for many diseases. Similarly, compressed soils can starve a plant of oxygen and water, so do not compress the soil when planting. Aeration can be improved further with mulching.
  • Planting in Pots: Patio and miniature roses will suffice in 40cm pots, while compact ground cover and climbing roses will suffice in 60cm containers. You should prune your rose's roots prior to planting to encourage fibrous growth, apply mulch and water regularly in the warmer months.
