Rosa Rugosa Alba is the original white form of the species that founded the Rugosa Class.    Rosa Rugosa Alba is one of the highest rated roses by the American Rose Society.  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?
