Roses > Hybrid Rugosa > Conrad Ferdinand Meyer

Modern Shrub, by Muller. Purchased from Antique Rose Emporium. Planted in Fall of 2003. Technically a rugosa hybrid. The hybrid rugosa x hybrid tea roses are very interesting to me conceptually, but if they don't exhibit the rugosa's characteristic disease resistance, what's the point? Very prone to black spot and never grew well. It was growing in a poor location though, right under an oak tree.

Resistant to blackspot
