Product Description

Most roses produce hips, but rarely do we let the flowers give way to fruit. They get deadheaded long before that. Rugosa roses are the ones gardeners let grow hips, because there's no beating their taste—especially the delightful sweet–tart flavor of Sweet Hips. The fruit's texture is nice and firm. Nutritionally, it's extremely high in Vitamin C and antioxidants. Excellent for tea, jelly, candy, seasoning and more. Blooms will cover the plant early in the summer, then repeat sporadically through the season until frosts start hitting in fall. The plentiful fruit can be harvested any time after it's turned red, and its peak flavor is after frost has sweetened it. The plant is a dream—drought tolerant, hardy and disease resistant. It grows into a lovely mounded shape and makes a fast–growing and fragrant addition to your border. Self–pollinating. Rosa rugosa 'KAPswehp'

Sweet Hips® Rose is now an award-winning rose--Winner of the William Cecil Award for Best General Impression and Winner of the Lord Burleigh Award for Most Disease Resistant Rose.
