Teresa Bugnet was a surprise rose, supposed to be a Baron Prevost in a group of heirloom roses. It took me forever to identify her but I loved her red canes in winter,arching vase shape, disease resistance, very light thorns and fragrance. I just kept moving her until she found her favorite spot, at the corner of my shed. She is the queen of my rose garden, making a beautiful backdrop for my more elegant fussy roses.

I came across this rose in my search for hardy, old-fashioned roses that survive a zone 4 winter. And does she ever! I've never had a single branch die out on me, and after four years she's pushing 8 feet high, one of the first roses to bloom for me. She keeps to herself, not spreading by root, but a true bush. The stems are also an attractive deep red through the winter.
This rose was well-chosen to bloom by the back side of my 30' X 15' lily pond, as it is quite easy-care and I can't spray there for fear of killing the fish. It is smothered in deliciously-scented, bright fuchsia blooms each spring, reflecting gorgeously on the water just as my pink water lilies begin to bloom. It reblooms reliably, though I'm afraid the Japanese beetles love it as much as I do. A very strong grower, it is best grown in a location where suckering will not be a liability.
I have a four-year-old, seven-foot-high shrub of this variety in my rose hedge. It's one of my favorite roses for hedges. It's a bit thinner, twiggier, and less thorny than other hybrid rugosas, and the foliage is rather... unusual.
However, the plant blooms with little to no pruning, withstands adverse weather quite well, and is very fragrant as well. Highly recommended.

This beauty is the first of my 70+ roses to bloom every spring. I give it no protection in our zone 5 winters, yet it has barely any die back, It gets no diseases, despite our hot humid Indiana summers. I use no pesticides. It is susceptible only to rose borers (no problem if you put glue on the tips where you have pruned) and japanese beetles (they attack flowers but not the foliage.) It's a gem.
Wonderful low maintenance rose. Tough doesn't begin to explain the conditions we see here in SW Colorado. 50 to 60 mph winds in the Spring and she is exposed to them all. I only shape her to fit the location. I love the fact she sheds old blooms. Great wonderful experience. We see lows in the -teens and I leave the canes on all winter. Jer

This is such a beautiful rose, and grows beautifully. In poor clay soil in NC with some amendment added, it has adapted well and outperforms most other roses I have had. Truly a keeper! Not well suited for cut flowers, as the blooms soon drop their petals after cutting, still it is gorgeous to enjoy outdoors. Slightly fragrant with stunning color.

my first rose to open up this year(after so much rain here in
southern New Hampshire) I watched the first bloom get beat
down by weeks worth of rain, it recovered and put on a
show day after day. The blooms don't last all that long but the
bush is loaded with blooms for weeks,
they are beautiful and have nice foliage and its a tall strong
rose bush. Its super hardy and I've moved it three times over the past year and a half and it
takes the dry or moist areas pretty well. I'm including many
of these rugoses around the yard, looking forward to the
fall rose hips and the reddish canes for winter. Hopefully
I'll put on some photos!

This rose forms a 4" shrub with reddish stems. It has not been bothered by anything in the 10 years since I planted it. With some fertilizing, it had repeat blooms this year. A worthwhile rose to grow if like me, you live where winter are very cold, Zone 4b. And not least, it is also fragrant.

I like this rose. It's very hardy, doesn't seem to get black spot, has very fragrant flowers, good fall color ranging from maroon to yellow, and the canes turn a deep red in the winter. Occasional bright red hips. Does suffer from mildew in humid weather, but this usually clears up on it's own when the weather is drier. Blooms early, with lighter repeat bloom throughout the summer.

My favorite rose (so far) - the foliage was resistant to blackspot when other (OGR) roses were being seriously attacked. The branches are not as thorny as some, and the flowers are quite pretty and fragrant.

Clusters of from 3 - 5 buds with graceful slim sepals, open to good sized, fragrant, lilac pink very double flowers. The crinkled petals are distinctly veined. Makes a handsome plant with healthy foliage in a lovely shade of blue/green. Very few thorns on the green shaded red canes.
