HORTICULTURAL
Plant Sale Text: Swamp rose is an old-time garden favorite and was popular in gardens a hundred years ago. It is again gaining favor because of its handsome foliage that is seldom troubled by disease, and is one of the few roses that performs well with “wet feet”. Single bright pink flowers, 3-inches across, are borne in showy corymbs. Swamp rose blooms profusely in early summer. In fall, it produces attractive small reddish-orange hips that draws in birds. Give this rounded shrub room to attain its typical stature - 6 feet tall and wide.
