Description from Nature Hills Nursery

A Unique, Fragrant, Ruffled Rose

The F. J. Grootendorst displays clusters of blooms with frilled edges and a spicy fragrance.

These cute flowers resemble fringed carnations. It has crinkly, bright green foliage on a bushy, vigorous, upright shrub and blooms from June until frost.

It will grow to about 2 1/2′ if pruned back each spring. F. J. Grootendorst is very thorny like most rugosas and is a repeat bloomer.

Rugosa roses are very tolerant of harsh conditions. They can tolerate wind, poor soil and salt spray.

Grootendorst grow best in fertile, moist, well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade.

Provide good air circulation and remove fallen leaves to help prevent disease. Rugosas respond well to pruning so it can be kept smaller if desired.

Use this plant in mixed borders, hedges, and as specimens.
