Rugosa Roses - Lotty's Love


Out of stock

This everblooming new First Editions® selection was awarded a gold medal from the American Rose Society. It is named after Charlottle Bock, whose husband Chuck developed it. Large 10cm (4") semi-double, cup-shaped blossoms of rich purple, suffused with magenta fill the air with a spicy cinnamon scent, and, of course, are followed by red hips in the fall. Lotty's Love® is a slightly more refined bush than most rugosas, but it has the same hardiness, salt tolerance and disease resistance which makes them a landscaping favourite. Mature size is approx. 100cm (42") high and 120cm (48") wide.

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
