blueleaf rose, Rosa glauca

Blueleaf rose was welcomed into our gardens because it's just a little different. The glaucous cast to the foliage make it an attractive plant even when not in bloom, and the flowers echo that difference with this interesting shade. Blueleaf has been reported wild in CO, IL, MA, ME, MN, NY, SC, NB, NF, NS, and QC. Beal Gardens, MSU, 5/31/18. Rose family, Rosaceae.
