Rosa Rugosa. A friend of the bees and abundant producer of rose hips. Rose hips, small, seedy 'berries', are high in antioxidants and vitamin C. They can be eaten raw, but in our experience they are best used in tea or jam (in fact a blend of dried elderberries, peaches, apples, sumac, and rose hips make a nice herbal orange pekoe substitute!). The fresh petals make an elegant addition to salads.

Height including roots: 20 cm one year seedling

Canadian Hardiness Zone: 5

Recommended Use: preserves, fresh eating (petals)

Ripens: July-Aug for petals, late October for hips

Pollination: self pollinating 

To Order for Spring 2021: orders for spring shipping or pick-up can be placed as early as December. If you wish to reserve anything before that time or have any questions, please email us: sales@silvercreeknursery.ca. We sell only apples and pears bareroot in the fall, as they are most winter hardy. Everything else (as well as apple and pear) is available in spring.
