Darn Gorgeous Rose
Northern Bayberry

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.

Northern Bayberry makes an excellent hedge or feature shrub. It will retain its leaves in warmer climates but drops them in colder areas. They produce blue-grey berries that have a wax coating on them that can be used to make candles or soaps.

In colder hardiness zones the leaves turn an attractive orange to red colour in the fall, making it a striking addition to your landscape.

Northern Bayberry is native to Nova Scotia and tolerates both drought and wet conditions. It is also a nitrogen fixer that tolerates poor soil conditions.
