Probably the most popular of all the Rugosas.
The long pointed, scrolled buds of 'Old Rosemary' open to deep crimson blooms with cream coloured stamens and age to a magenta pink. The flowers are 4 to 5 inches across and semi-double, with loosely arranged, folded petals. The blooms are very fragrant and smell like sugared almonds.
Few hips are produced. and the foliage is dense and apple green.

Like most other hybrid rugosa roses, this vigorous rose is a tough plant with good disease resistance, it tolerates a wide range of soils and seaside conditions.

Its repeating blooms ans attractive foliage make it an excellent choice for mixed shrub planting, and makes an excellent scented hedge.
