Striped Foliage and Large Magenta Pink Blooms

Belle Poitevine, Rosa 'Belle Poitevine', is a hardy rugose rose which was introduced in 1894. It is graced by dense, richly veined foliage.

The deep magenta-pink buds unfurl in early summer to informal warm magenta pink blooms that continue in fragrant waves until the arrival of frost. These blooms can be up to 4 inches across!

In fall, the foliage is transformed into a beautiful autumnal display of yellow and orange, accented perfectly by large orange-red fruit (hips). The decorative hips attract and feed birds in fall and winter.

This rose is grown on its own root so if it freezes down the old foliage, the plant will come back true to its color and size.  It is winter hardy to zone 3.

'Belle Poitevine's' blooms are fragrant and would make a good choice for a large hedge, especially in cooler climates.

A healthy, vigorous plant, it can reach 5 feet tall and 4 feet wide. Its' hardy foliage is resistant to mildew, rust, and blackspot. 

* Pink blooms on an always reliable plant.
* Disease Resistant
* Fall foliage colors of yellow and orange.

best ever Review by mrs soap
This rose is an excellent climber. Here in the Adirondacks my rosebushes always die back significantly in the winter, but Belle Poiitevine did not. The bush has produced mounds of beautiful pink flowers, and now in August is starting to bloom again, on a more modest scale. I love this rosebush. I am so happy I bought it.
Belle Poitevine Review by Donna Seidel
I planted Belle 20 plus years ago, next to mailbox on the street. It quickly grew into a graceful, relaxed vase shape maybe 6 high by 5 wide It never suffered any problems, laughed at neglect and ignored the shade of trees that grew to shade it. My path from driveway to front door usually included a detour to bury my nose in the bush's freshly opened flowers - Belle's fragrance was always strong and wonderful. It was my first rose when I began gardening. All I did was water it the first couple of years. For the next 18 years it flourished with whatever rains came through and total human neglect. In my new yard, I planted several as a hedge along the south border. The summer wind carries the fragrance to me and on to the next house :-) The wicked thorns stopped shortcuts across my yard, too. If I could only have one perennial, this is my choice. The fragrance makes it my choice, the beauty and easy care are the bonus.
Belle Poitevine rugosa rose Review by sandpiper8
This rose has the most beguiling fragrance of any rose I know. It is a thorny little beast, and it has no stems to speak of, so not good for cutting; and it will drop its petals soon after bringing it into the house, but it will perfume a room for the short time it is there. I recommend planting it next to a door or window where its perfume will entrance all who pass by, and its lovely color will be appreciated. I live in New England. near the shore, so it is a perfect choice for this location.
