One of the most famous of all of the Old Garden Roses, Rosa Mundi has many stunning characteristics that have made her a favorite of gardeners worldwide since the 1500s. This once-blooming plant produces striking, semi-double, 3-4” flowers with 12-18 petals of crimson background splashed and striped with white and pink and is accentuated by bright golden stamens. She is nearly thornless, compact, produces beautiful hips in the fall which draw the birds, is very fragrant, and is also shade tolerant. Rosa Mundi has so much to offer! We strongly recommend her for zones 4-8.

pleasantly different

I got this one probably in the late 1990s or early 2000s. I enjoy the variable striping, which is why I called the rose "pleasantly different." I'm not so much a fan of the fragrance of older Gallica roses as I am of some highly fragrant Damask, Alba and Centifolia roses, but thumbs up for the appearance. I will attest to this kind of rose being tough. It comes back from being deer-pruned and it tolerates all sorts of weather. Some years I give it benign neglect and it still grows. Some of the canes have reverted back to the Apothecary rose that Rosa Mundi sported from. I've heard that the solution is to prune off those canes, though I don't mind the combination of striped roses and roses colored a solid dark pink. Pollinators love it. Putting it in the "roses that attract bees" category is quite correct. It's one of those flowers that it's hard to get a picture of without a bee in the golden center, busily collecting pollen.

Great striped classic rose

I’ve had this one for 5+ years in a sunny location on a hill. It’s competing with some aggressive other plants, including several old bearded iris from my Great grandmother’s farm, three vigorous Japanese anemones, and a poppy. It grows right through them and then blooms like crazy! It took a few years to really put on a show but now it does so every year. It’s a classic! I’m in Zone 5b and it has no issues with our weather.

A lovely companion for my Apothecary's Rose

This is another rose I planted back in 2011 and it is going strong in 2018. It set a few flowers in 2013 but really pulled out all the stops starting in 2015. Here in central VA Zone 7, it blooms a few days after my Apothecary's Rose but there's enough overlap to enjoy both bushes at once before the peonies open up.

Worth the Wait

The rose bush has been extremely slow to bloom however it has been worth the wait. Year 3 only one bloom, year 4 bloomed the day before a rose show won blue ribbon has been giving beautiful blooms for two weeks now.. Very fragrant and oh so beautiful pictures do not give this rose justice!!
