Product Description

Rosa hugonis (Rosaceae) (RO-za chi-NEN-sis) Father Hugo Rose Rosa hugonis sometimes known as the "Golden Rose of China" or the "Father Hugo Rose" was introduced in the last century in 1899. In early spring, this rose is covered in primrose-yellow blossoms with bright yellow stamens. The saucer-shaped flowers are single (with 5 petals), with little fragrance and are not recurrent blooming. The medium sized blossoms are 1 1/2 - 2" in diameter and are borne singly in great profusion along the arching branches of the shrub. In China this species is found growing in rather poor, dry and/or rocky sites. Plants are extremely winter hardy (to at least -40 F) and seem to perform best when grown on its own roots (not grafted). The plant is very vigorous and can get large - perhaps 8' tall x 8' wide. The habit is an upright growing bush. Arching branches are reddish-brown in color with young thorny shoots and older shoots become nearly thornless. Branches are covered with medium green, small fern-like leaves. The foliage is extremely healthy and free from disease. The autumn foliage may be a blend of yellow, bronze, purple and orange colors. Bloom color: Yellow Bloom period: Spring - Fall Height: 8' Spread: 6' Zones: 4-9
