Moje Hammarberg

Type: Rugosa

An excellent, although not widely known, rugosa. Large, violet-crimson, double blooms with wonderfully strong fragrance. Like many rugosas this one will produce both hips and blooms together in late summer. Rose hips are sometimes referred to as the fruit of the rose and this is very true in the instance. Its edible hips are very large and purplish in color and Louise says that are quite tasty, much like plums. Repeat blooming and hardy zones 3-9.

Vigorous, wonderful, deeply scentedReview by Cheddarsox
I remember this rose from my grandmother's garden in Chicago. Now I'm in South Carolina, zone 7B, and it's just as prolific, hardy and wonderful here! This is my bush's second year and it's growing great and covered with blooms. The petals are PERFECT for drying, literally holding their fragrance for years. I adore this rose. The crazy wildly thorny stems are of interest as well. They look like something out of a sci fi movie! (Posted on 5/3/2018)
Large clusters of blooms AND rose hips!Review by Sarah
I look for hardy roses that are continually in bloom and fragrant. Check

Also looking for roses that produce large tasty rose hips. Check.

Stumbled across the description for Moje Hammarberg while I was looking through the rugosa roses. Purported to fruit with large hips that taste like plums! I counted 21 potential rose hips on the shrub in my garden this morning in one bloom cluster! Looking forward to next season's harvest!

This is a beautiful, hardy rose that produces some of the most nutritious and delicious fruit on earth. (Posted on 9/14/2017)
My First Rose BushReview by NannyP
I have grown this rose or seen this rose growing for 75 years. I live in Zone 5 - southern New Hampshire - and ever since I was a 4 years old, I remember this rose growing beside
my great grandmother's kitchen steps. I have cuttings growing in my own yard now and
I have given many cuttings to friends and family. It is extremely hardy, has a lovely vase
growing form, and constantly blooms from June to October. (Posted on 11/30/2016)
