Collection: Rosa Rugosa

Rosa Rugosa, also known as the beach rose, was first introduced in the U.S. in the late 19th century to prevent dune erosion. Now it’s found all along the New England coast, and stands as a fragrant symbol of sturdy, stylish, windswept persistence, as well as love and adoration. It is associated with Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of beauty and love in ancient mythology. In the Renaissance period, it symbolized rebirth and renewal, inclusion, universal understanding, and order.
