Darn Gorgeous Rose
Red Rugosa Rose

Developed by DNA Gardens, Darn Gorgeous Rose is an ornamental shrub that produces radiant red teacup blossoms throughout the summer.

If you are looking to add a splash of colour to your home garden, Darn Gorgeous Rose is for you.

Our growers think this is truly a "Darn Gorgeous" rose and is a pleasure to see growing in our fields.

Red Rugosa Rose is well-known for its incredible cold hardiness and disease resistance. This variety has beautiful crimson red flowers followed by scarlet rose hips in autumn. Try using the rose hips to make syrups or add flavor to existing fruit dishes and drinks.

Due to their overly thorny stems, Red Rugosa Rose is perfect for creating an impenetrable, deer resistant hedge. We recommend applying mulch during the summer months to retain moisture, cool the roots, and prevent weeds.

Note: This variety is from a seed source, not cuttings. Although somewhat true to seed and color expect some variability.
