Rosa rugosa

The rose is a rose,
And was always a rose.
But the theory now goes
That the apple's a rose,
And the pear is, and so's
The plum, I suppose.
The dear only knows
What will next prove a rose.
You, of course, are a rose—
But were always a rose.

–Robert Frost

The rose family is so full of revelry to our noses, eyes, and tastebuds. This rugosa creates lovely pink petals that add a sensual note to teas (think Damiana, Hawthorn, and Rose), or makes the nicest honeys and lotions that we all use here at JMG — a rose honey facial is utter decadence. The hips, used in past times to keep the scurvy away at sea, have high Vitamin C content and are an excellent addition to teas. Due to the delicate nature of rose petals, only dried are available unless you live in the Portland area through to The Dalles and are willing to take a trip to the farm. Dried Petal and Leaf available anytime. Fresh or Dried Hips available.
