The gorgeous Belle Poitevine Rugosa Rose (Rosa 'Belle Poitevine') is a hardy Rugosa Rose that was introduced in 1894. It is graced by dense, richly veined foliage! But the real show is the giant, fragrant blooms! The deep magenta-pink buds unfurl in early summer to informal soft, double pink 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 rosehips. The decorative hips attract and feed birds in fall and winter, plus add winter interest! They can even be used in teas, made into preserves, and used in floral design!

This Rose is grown on its own root so if it freezes down to the ground, the plant will come back true to its color and size! It is winter hardy to zone 3 and up to zone 7 and grows into a healthy, vigorous plant! Belle Poitevine Rugosa Roses are hardy and the foliage is resistant to mildew, rust, and black spot. These are highly adaptable and easy-going plants for a carefree landscape!

Planting and Application:

Belle Poitevine Rugosa makes a good choice for a large hedge, especially in cooler climates.

They're also ideal backdrops for your Cottage borders, perennial beds, and Rose gardens alike! A great addition to mixed-shrub borders and softening the corner of an informal planting or garage. Slow the wind, and block drifting snow while creating shelterbelts along your driveway or sidewalk with beautiful pink blooms. They also have the impenetrable thorns of the family that keep unwanted visitors out of your garden!

Create groupings that are bird-friendly motels and nesting sites, while also becoming a boon to nectar-hungry honeybees and butterflies that will seek out these blooms all growing season! A single shrub makes a great specimen and focal point for filling garden beds and Rock Gardens with ruffled bright pops of color and lush green foliage! Smaller pruned shrubs can even be kept in large outdoor planters with ease! Don't worry about salt spray from the road, Rugosa Roses are salt tolerant!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Rugosa Roses love the full sun and bloom best in at least 6 hours of sunlight a day. Thriving in about any kind of well-drained soil, Rugosa also tolerates a wide range of soil types and moisture conditions but does the very best in regular moisture and enriched soil locations. Provide a 3-4 inch thick layer of mulch to hold in moisture and insulate the root system.

Pruning is best done in early spring if needed. Read all you need about pruning Roses, winterizing Roses, and un-wintering Roses in spring in our #ProPlantTips Garden Blog! Don't forget the Nature Hills Root Booster, to give this fragrant Rose life-long support when used during planting.

Rose Bush FAQs

Where Is The Best Place To Plant Rose Bushes?

Roses need a protected location and prefer full sun and favor the drying power of the morning sun and flower best in at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Choose a location in good, enriched soil that drains well and has good air circulation.

What Is The Best Month to Plant Roses?

You can plant Roses any time if you are able to provide enough consistent moisture and attention. While there is not a specific month that is best, generally because it changes with temperatures, climate and growing zone. However, the easiest times of the year to get Rose bushes established in your landscape are in spring after the last frost date, and in fall about 4-6 weeks before the first frost.

Do Roses Come Back Every Year?

Rose bushes are deciduous woody perennial shrubs and will return bigger and better each year.
