Old Hybrid Tea
"Rugosa roses are those derived from the thorny Japanese rose R. rugosa, the two
mains forms of which are wine-red and white. Though a few crosses had been made earlier
(as early as the 1820's), in the 1890's several hybridizers became interested in working
with the species due to its hardiness, health, vigor, and special beauty. This lattermost
is due to its glossy green leaves and splendid orange hips as well as its large, beautiful
flowers. Due to the ease with which it crosses, much has been tried with the Rugosas, and
efforts continue today. Colors range from white through pink to red and purple, and yellow
can be found as well. There are new dwarfer cultivars, but normally the specimen will
reach five or six feet in height. Some old cultivars: `Roseraie de l'Hay', `Blanc Double
de Coubert', `Fimbriata', `Mme. Alvarez del Campo', `New Century', `Comte
d'Epremesnil',`Grootendorst Supreme', `Rose Apples'."
