Rosa Rugosa bloom time from seed?
I obtained a bunch of seeds of a Rosa Rugosa variety from the hips of a plant in a nearby park and planted the seeds in Fall of 2010. A number of them germinated and I have about 6 small plants now growing in poor conditions in shade/heavy clay soil and a larger plant in sun/fertile soil in a planter.
Are these worth keeping? How well do they do in this area on their own roots and how do they handle being transplanted? The parent plant is growing well but is on a lake shore - conditions that I cannot duplicate. Also, how long can I expect them to grow before they first flower? Thanks!
