Naming

Adrien René Franchet and Alphonse Trémeau de Rochebrune already described Rosa lucieae but the name was validly published by François Crépin.

Taxonomy

Rosa lucieae is a species in the genus Rosa which contains approximately 180 to 623 species and belongs to the family of the Rosaceae (Rose Family).

Characteristics

Growth

The comparatively fast-growing and short-lived shrubs have a prostrate habit and reach heights of 3 to 5 metres. They spread slowly, the main growing season is in spring and summer.

Wood and Bark

Leaves

Rosa lucieae is evergreen. The imparipinnate leaves are alternate. The obovate leaflets are serrulate and petiolate. The foliage is dense in summer and porous in winter.

Flowers and Fruits

Rosa lucieae produces corymbs of showy, white five-stellate flowers from April to July.

In autumn the shrubs produce purple hips that are persistent on the plant.

Root System

The plants produce stolons which give rise to vegetative spread.

Distribution

Rosa lucieae is native to East China, Korea and Japan.

Cultivation

The shrubs prefer a sunny to half-shady situation on dry to moderately moist soil. They prefer sandy-loamy or gritty-loamy soil with a pH between 4,8 and 7. The plants need a soil depth of at least 41 centimetres for good growth. They tolerate temperatures down to -18°C (USDA zone 7) and need a frost-free period of at least 20 weeks.

Tolerance of special soil conditions

  • none: soil salinity, anaerobic soil
  • medium: drought, calcareous soil

Uses

The ornamental value of Rosa lucieae lies especially in its fragrance. The recommended planting distance is 90 to 240 centimetres.

Maintenance and Propagation
