Frau Dagmar Hartopp Rose
The Frau Dagmar Hartopp Rose, Rosa 'Frau Dagmar Hartopp', is very simply elegant and is very low maintenance. This rugosa rose is very hardy.
The fragrant, silvery-pink blooms are followed by large brick red hips in the fall. The foliage is bright green, crinkled and disease resistant turning reddish-purple then gold in autumn. The yellow/gold fall color is certainly contrasted with red hips!
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.
Use this plant in the rose garden, perennial garden, mixed border, and as a low hedge. Frau Dagmar Hartopp roses are tolerant of harsh conditions, including salt spray, wind and poor soil.
