!st time with Rugosa's
Coming from Fl., I never had any dealings with any Rugosa's. I've seen many pictures of beautiful blooms and fantastic foliage. I finally got Rosa Rugosa in my fall order in a 1 gal pot. Before it gets going good this spring I need to know what it requires to grow & bloom to be at it's best. My native soil is hard red clay. I'm ready to grow it in a large pot if I have to. I know it will NOT accept being sprayed with a fungicide. Soil requirements and water. I would like this rose to be a decent shrub in a couple of years. If I have good success with this one, I'm thinking about getting Rosa Rugosa Alba. Someone let me know what I'm getting into.
