At the Royal Society of Horticulture of Belgium ... The occasional flowering throughout the summer of Rosa rugosa is here considered as simply an accidental, and not a reliable, character.

This rose, in most every place, performs admirably. The blooms are nice, and so are the hips, but in clay soil, like mine, it's not as vigorous as some sources state it to be in looser soils, which is very understandable since R. rugosa naturally lives in sandy soil.

Thank you, agree to that. Rugosa is known as "beach rose."

Following the coast on our way to Akkeshi I found little of interest until I reached Sara. The sandy levels on the seashore are frequently covered with a wild rose: Rosa rugosa. It has large dark green leaves and single purple flowers, measuring three inches in diameter, and bears a red round fruit which is much relished by Ainos and Japanese. If preserved in sugar they would make a fine dessert fruit.
