Rosa rugosa var. kamschatica Regel

Is this rugosa worth using? It doesn’t seem to be used very much at all. It’s in the parentage of Therese Bugnet and John McNab. There is a nursery that has it for sale and I was thinking of picking it up.



In some books where it is mentioned they write about it as inferior in decorative value to the normal R. rugosa. I don’t know if it has special properties that R. rugosa doesn’t have and may be useful for breeding.


As I remembered it is suposed to be an hybrid I went to HMF and found it is Rosa davurica Pall.

I thought that was the subspecies they used to use for grafting or whatever?
