Rosa rugosa and its hybrids.
...It would seem as though many of these Rugosa hybrids might be useful in producing new varieties of hardy roses. [...] For the convenience of those amateurs who are doing breeding work with roses, the pollen of the hybrids in the Arboretum's collection has been examined in the Cytological Laboratory. In the following discussion the percentage of fertile pollen, as determined by microscopical examination, is reported for each hybrid where buds were available for study.
Pollen fertility 90%.
The flowers are large and semi-double, very similar to those of R. rugosa in appearance and verging too closely on magenta to be generally popular. The variety is very hardy, however, and is a reliable bloomer.

Belle Poitevine Bright rose pink, full double flowers borne in loose clusters. This excellent rose is one of the most satisfactory of the Rugosa family. Belle Poitevine is an extremely prolific bloomer, starting in June and blooming continuously through the summer until fall. Owing to its habit of forming strong basal branches, it produces one of the most dense and attractive shrubs of the entire rose family. It is ideal for hedge purposes and equally valuable for specimen plants and foundation groups. This rose is extremely hardy and requires no winter protection anywhere in the United States and it is therefore the pink member of the group of Eskimo Beauties.
