The Wild Rugosa Rose

Many visitors to Maine often wonder what flower or species of rose this is – it’s the Rugosa Rose and originated in Asia. The small, cherry tomato-like buds are Rose Hips, which are actually a fruit. The rose petals do not grow from these hips as many would suspect and often they appear on the plant simultaneously. They can be found all over Maine.
