Romeo Cherry vs Red Rugosa Rose

Prunus x kerrasis Romeo

Rosa Rugosa rubra

Romeo Cherry
Red Rugosa Rose

Romeo Cherry is a hardy deciduous hybrid shrub variety of Sour Cherry released in the Romance Series of dwarf sour cherries from the University of Saskatchewan in 2004. It features dark red/black, flavourful fruit most suitable for fresh eating, processing, and juice production. Romeo Cherry is also suitable as an accent or landscape tree.

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.
