Rugosa Rose 'Wild Spice'

I was too late for bareroot so I had to pay a premium, getting it in a large pulp pot. I bought it hoping it would make a good selection for edible rose hips. The flowers have a nice scent but are blown away in no time. According to the patent filed on this plant, it was developed from self-pollinated seed from ‘Pirette’. It is notable for its scent, repeat blooming, disease resistance, and upright, well-branched growth. Rosa JACruwhi ‘Wild Spice’, PP11575, Bred by Keith W. Zary.
