Rotes Meer (also known as Purple Pavement) is one of the newer, lower growing rugosas coming out of Germany.  It has the "old rose" charm, coupled with excellent fragrance.  It is very like Roseraie de l'Hay, only smaller.  Rotes Meer has a rounded bushy shape.  Winter hardiness is excellent.  Disease resistance is outstanding.  Rotes Meer is truly a welcome addition for the garden.
