Re: Theresa Bugnet rose

One caveat on the Rugosas...at least here - they are very susceptible to "rose rosette" a virally caused 'rose cancer' spread by (?) mites. I have had to dig and destroy two of my roses thus afflicted.

I have had a couple of times where I to thought it was too wild. I has put out a couple of suckers in the last 2 years. I moved one and should move the other. I don't usually like Rugosa Roses either. It has some of the really thorny canes near the bottom but on the whole it is almost thornless.
It has had to grow in some really lousy soil. I had a pool there several years ago and when they filled the hole they bought me "top soil". I don't know where they got it but it is some of the worst soil I have ever seen. It is very tight clay goo. I keep trying to add more organics to it to loosen it up.
I love a garden in the winter almost as much as the summer if it has lots of texture and color. That has always been my goal. You have to remember that I live in Western Oklahoma where things don't thrive they survive.
