The 'Photos' link ( it seems to involve "tab=10" ) seems to have been disabled today -- for all of the roses I've located.

I trust this is only temporary! (It was working fine up through yesterday!)

Hi, I just planted rosaraie de l'hay here in zone 8 Wilmington, NC. I read a guy in Minnesota who says you cant treat rugosas with fungicide, is this true? If not than what? Any help is appreciated

Rosaraie de l'hay shouldn't need any fungicide, in fact we have grown her in a setting where it couldn't be sprayed because the public is allowed to handle the plants and it did fine in zone 6.5 to 7, just north of the beltway around Washington, D.C. Rugosas will be damaged if sprayed with most fungicides, but there shouldn't be any need to spray them, anyway that is why people grow them in the first place.

I grow her in Richmond Virginia and we probably have the same blackspot environment being so geographically close, but my Roseraie de l'Hay remains spotless. I have an organic garden here and she really is bullet proof. You should not need to spray her at all. I can tell you though, rugosa roses resent chemicals on their crinkle textured leaves and tend to burn up if you accidentally let chemical sprays even drift on to them. So my advice would be to keep all chemical sprays away from her and she'll perform just fine for you.

you can try i part cows milk to 10 parts water. 100mls to a litre of water sprayed every ten days from bud break.this does work and used on wider scale here in australia both in roses and grape industries for this the usual fungicides such as copper oxychloride etc;

I bought 10 Roseraie de l'Häy and planted them to form a hedge. As a Rugosa I was assured that the deer would leave them alone. Something is eating nearly all the foliage.

I loive out in the country north of Princeton, NJ. Plenty of critters of all types.

Is it deer? Any help?

Who ever assured you that deer wouldn't eat Rugosas obviously knows nothing about deer. Deer don't like the many thorns and bristles on the canes but their favourite thing to eat is the new growth at the ends of the canes. If really hungry they will also eat any leaves that are on the outsides where their muzzle won't come into contact with the thorns. I live in deer country and most of the time they don't eat Rugosas lower down, but they do eat them. I find that Rabbits eat the foliage lower downand they also knaw on the lower canes too. When your Rugosas have made some old canes, they should be able to survive the onslot of the deer.

Thank you. I am planning to make a hedge and this is very valuable information to me too

George C. Thomas lists Roseraie de l'Hay as a sport of R. rugosa rosea.

This may explain why Graham Stuart Thomas specifically disputed this parentage. Reference added.
