Rosa rugosa in tough conditions.
Roses don't like my garden: it is prone to waterlogging all winter, dry in summer and lies in a terrible Blackspot region. But the basic rosa rugosa roses do very well, flower for months, have fabulous scent and even lots of hips. They don't suffer from blackspot or rust, they tolerate the wet ground and I cut them down to the ground each year so early growth is not damaged by cold wind in Spring.
I notice that there are a number of attractive hybrids but I wonder if they are just as tough. Does anyone grow them or know how susceptible they are compared to their less refined relatives?
