Creamy white blooms with showy, bright yellow
stamens cover the canes for several weeks in late
spring. The blooms and dark green, ferny foliage
are similar to Rosa spinosissima, but ‘Altaica’ is
taller and more vigorous, reaching from 4 to 7
feet in height. Produces beautiful maroon,
globular hips for fall and winter color. Tolerant
of poor soils and disease resistant, this is a
valuable early flowering shrub for the landscape.
Note: This rose may require a May shipping date to ensure adequate root development.
