Notes:
Paul Olsen writes: 'Schneezwerg's parentage is usually given as Rosa rugosa x R. bracteata or a Polyantha. Shepherd stated that the parentage is likely Rosa rugosa x R. beggeriana. I wondered where he got this information. Now I know. It came from Dr. Frank Skinner. I would agree with Skinner because that would explain 'Schneezwerg's excellent cold hardiness.

The Swedish Rose Society recommends Schneezwerg for northern Sweden.


Many small scarlet hips.
