Old Rose.

The Rosa rugosa is native to Japan and western Asia; and the form ‘Scabrosa’, present in the gardens, is very similar to the botanical species.

It is notable for its single corolla, with 5 perfumed petals, mauve red with silvery reflexes, and the prominent golden stamens.

The big red fruits look like small tomatoes, and are very ornamental.
