Rose - Blanc Double de Coubert - Hybrid Rugosa
If for no other reason, buy this resilient antique rose for its large, intoxicatingly fragrant, semi-double white flowers. This rose was introduced in 1892 and is still going strong.
The late spring/early summer repeat blooms are followed by bright red hips, and the shiny, dark green foliage looks good all season long.
‘Blanc Double de Coubert’ is one of the very few shade-tolerant roses. It is also resistant to black spot, mildew and rust.
Keep the soil a bit on the acid side (5.8 - 6.3) and the results will really wow you. This plant produces gorgeous cut flowers and it also dries well for wreaths, scrapbooking and other decorative uses.
Note: this rose has its own root; if a harsh winter freeze kills the top growth, the rose will recover and grow back in the spring, good as new.
The Blanc Double de Coubert is renowned for its strong fragrance!
The rose hips are high in vitamin C and are used for tea, jams, and jellies.
