Sandy

Developed by the USDA, 'Sandy' Rugosa Rose was developed from a cross of 12 superior strains and selected from an assembly of 48 total seed accessions. These 12 strains were selected for their superior seedling vigor, survival, growth rate, foliage abundance, high level of insect and disease resistance, and good fruit production. Sandy has been field tested at sand dune locations from North Carolina to Massachusetts with good success.  While the species Rosa rugosa is commonly found growing within USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 3b-8b, the cultivar Sandy is presently being recommended for use within zones 5-8b.

'Sandy' rugosa rose is very adaptive with good tolerance to salt spray and droughty soil conditions. Since its growth is best on well drained, sandy soils, it performs extremely well as a shrubby stabilization plant on coastal sand dunes.  conditions, Sandy can attain heights of five to six feet.  Although deciduous, this erect shrub can offer year round sand  dune protection due to its dense stem production character. The  numerous stems produced by Sandy are covered with fine, sharp  thorns. It has serrated, lustrous, dark green leaves which have a somewhat hairy underside.

When considered for planting around residential areas, Sandy has numerous applications. The aesthetic value of this shrub are obvious: dark green summer foliage and flowers which bloom most of the summer. By planting Sandy around residential areas, wildlife will be attracted providing a living bird feeder or birdhouse, as well as escape cover for both birds and mammals.  If this same planting was established with close spacing, this shrub could be utilized as a living fence or included in a privacy screen.
