David Thompson Rose
The David Thompson Rose, Rosa 'David Thompson', Hybrid Rugosa, is a hardy rugosa rose that flowers freely through the season.
The deep pink buds open to 2-3" rich fuchsia pink flowers that offer one of the most intense fragrances.
The disease resistant foliage makes this an excellent addition to the landscape.
This rose has its own root. The advantage of own root roses is that once established they are very resilient. If winter's freezing breezes kill the top growth, the rose will grow back in the spring, and the recovered rose will look the same as the one you purchased.
This rugosa rose is one of the Canadian Explorer series bred by Svejda in Ottawa in 1979.
Use this plant in a rose garden, perennial garden, mixed border, or as a low hedge.
