Ramanas rose is a top 5 rose among landscape architects. It has so many positive features that make it impossible not to grow at least a few in every road. Among all its advantages here are just some of them: absolutely care-free, extremely hardy, fully disease-resistant, and most importantly long-flowering. It originates in eastern parts of Russia, E. Asia and Japan.

Carmen is a hybrid Ramanas rose bred and introduced by Peter Lambert from Germany in 1905. It is a cross between rosa rugosa var. rosea and Princesse de Béarn variety of perpetual rose from 1884. It produces abundance of medium-sized (5-8 cm across), single, slightly fragrant, velvety flowers of deep purple red colour. Borne singly or in clusters of 2-3 they come out from June until September, and are followed by deep orange red to scarlet red hips.

Deciduous leaves are wrinkled, rich green and glossy, composed of 5-9 narrowly oblong leaflets. There is usually a lot of them and they completely cover the plant making it a great, non-transparent hedging choice. The stems are prickly, densely covered with short spines like hairy locust. It grows vigorously, moderately to fast, and can be pruned in early spring.

Ramanas rose will grow almost anywhere – it tolerates wide range of soils, adverse conditions and city pollution. For best results, however, grow it in medium-fertile soil in full sun, and keep the soil moist after transplanting before the plant grows large enough to cast enough shade to its roots. Hardy to about -34°C.
