Invasive rosa rugosa rubra!

mark cordner asked 13 years ago

rosa rugosa rubra…..I planted over 300 as a hedge next to our drive two years ago. This summer I noticed a few that had been so aggressive that they had tried to burrow under the kerb (1.5metres away) and then tried to surface via the tarmac base coat. What sould I do??? I dont mant to take them out as they are a valuable tool for my bees and birds and their fragrance far outweighs their dark side!!!!

Rosa rugosa can be very vigorous and invasive. You can only cut it back, cut any suckers that appear in the wrong place… or take it out altogether.
