Rosa Rugosa Rubra is the original species that founded the Rugosa Class.  We can see why is was eagerly used by hybridizers in the late 19'th Century, and why it is again being used by serious hybridizers again today.  Fragrant, disease resistant, winter hardy, and it sets large hips, what more can we ask?
