’Poppius’ F: suviruusu R. pendulina? x spinosissima (R. x reversa), Sweden 1850 We are uncertain of the origins of this rose. Carl Stenberg, Director of the Swedish Agricultural Academy Experimental Station, dedicated this rose to his friend and principal, the Finnish-born Gabriel Poppius. ’Poppius’ grows into widespread bush up to 2 metres with elegantly arching, almost thornless branches that steadily expands through suckering. It blossoms abundantly from midsummer onwards for about 3 weeks, starting a little later than ’Plena’. The smallish flowers are pink, cupshaped, loosely double, and slightly scented. The round, brownish-red hips set abundantly.

'Poppius' is one of the few older roses with a true Nordic heritage. Also known as Rosa stenbergii, this rose is named after Gabriel Poppius who, until his death in 1856, was the director of the Swedish Academy of Agriculture. The rose was hybridised by Carl Stenberg (1785-1872) who was in charge of the academy's experimental field trials. The rose can be found today in many older gardens in the north of Sweden but is generally not found in the rose literature. 'Poppius' belongs to the Pimpenellifolia group. It has blush pink flowers that are very fragrant. In Zone 1 it can grow as high as 3m.; in Zone 8, up to 1m. Like most of the Pimpinellifolia roses, it is very hardy, needs little attention and can grow in almost all conditions, including shade. Once-flowering, it produces a wonderful cluster of flowers in May / June.
