F. J. Grootendorst Hybrid Rugosa Rose

Enter Zip Code for estimated delivery:

A Unique, Fragrant, Ruffled Rose

The F. J. Grootendorst displays clusters of blooms with frilled edges and a spicy fragrance. These cute flowers resemble fringed carnations. It has crinkly, bright green foliage on a bushy, vigorous, upright shrub and blooms from June until frost.

It will grow to about 2 1/2’ if pruned back each spring. F. J. Grootendorst is very thorny like most rugosas and is a repeat bloomer.

Rugosa roses are very tolerant of harsh conditions. They can tolerate wind, poor soil and salt spray. Grootendorst grow best in fertile, moist, well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade.

Provide good air circulation and remove fallen leaves to help prevent disease. Rugosas respond well to pruning so it can be kept smaller if desired.

Use this plant in mixed borders, hedges, and as specimens.

* Hardy
* Carnation-like flowers
* Salt tolerant

Lovely, but apparently tasty Review by JPB
I bought it as a bare root and it threw bright green baby shoots within only 3 weeks of planing. Unfortunately, the deer love those tender morsels...
have enjoyed low maintenance Review by oan root
Received as a gift and have enjoyed every spring to late fall.
LOVE IT Review by MeMe
Absolutely love this rose bush !! I've had it probably 6 yrs and it is beautiful. I give it no care and it just keeps coming back. Tons of roses on it all summer and fall. The downside is the bush is very thorny. I am looking to buy about 10 more of these.
