Roses are my favorite flower. I have planted many different roses in my garden. The "wilder" more natural roses are the first to bloom every year. I started to plant these rugosa roses when I lost some of my more delicate ones. Even though the flowers are not as fragrant nor are the blooms as showy as the old fashioned teas and floribunda, I love these roses. They are reliable, disease resistant, and are around all season long.
