For town gardens under unfavorable climatic conditions, and for hedge planting and other bolder purposes in the rose garden, the Rugosa roses have proved most valuable acquisitions, and some very distinct and handsome hybrids have been introduced in late years: these, while retaining the vigour and hardiness of the type, have lost some of the roughness of contour which is sometimes objected to in the latter. Commencing with 'Madame Georges Bruant' (Rosa rugosa x Tea 'Sombreuil'), which was introduced from Poitiers in 1887, we now have a series of large double-flowered varieties of various shades of colour produced on strong-growing shrubs of absolute hardiness. A distinct variety with fringed petals, called 'Fimbriata', was the result of a cross between R. rugosa and the climbing Hybrid Tea 'Madame Alfred Carrière'.
