Rosa rugosa

Rosa rugosa - The flowers are lovely and have a heavy scent which attracts bees and hover-flies, but best of all are the wonderful large hips in the Autumn.

There are several large stands of Rosa rugosa along the coast of Largo Bay. It is one of the few roses that withstands salt-spray and storms. The roses pictured here were on the path bordering Lundin Golf Club car park.
