Rose Tree??

ladynine(Z5B Ont. Can.)July 12, 2005

I bought this rose 3 years ago in memory of my grandmother. I bought it, planted it and threw out the bag. Can anyone identify this particular rose and let me know how to prune it or just trim it - what do I do with this pretty baby?

Thanks,

Jo

Looks like one of the 'Grootendorst' rugosas.

I looked this up in Google and it sure does look like a 'Grootendorst' rugosas. How do you care for yours?

Doesn't look like a Grootendoors which have clusters of small, scentless blooms with fringed petals. More likely something like Red Masterpiece - hard to tell from the picture but J&P was selling that.
When it finishes blooming, prune the branches back to about a foot or 18", water and fertilize.

As a wild guess, Try Linda Campbell. If it is LC, then the canes below the buds will have a velvety texture, sort-of like lambs ears.
