'Ann Endt'. R. rugosa x R. foliolosa. Nobbs, New Zealand, 1978.
This is an interesting hybrid of R. rugosa, originating from the Far East, and R. foliolosa, a native of the southern prairies of the United States. These two species are similar in some ways, yet very different. ‘Ann Endt’, a product of New Zealand rose hybridizers, is neither widely available nor well documented. The blossom is deep crimson and single which is predictable since both parents are single roses. The cinnamon scent, not characteristic of the rugosas, is probably attributable to R. foliolosa. Descriptions of the foliage note that it is small; however, curiously, no mention is made of it being narrow, a typical trait of foliolosa foliage. ‘ Ann Endt’ may be available in New Zealand.
