Rosa rugosa (rugosa rose, Japanese rose, or Ramanas rose) is a species of rose native to eastern Asia, in northeastern China, Japan, Korea and southeastern Siberia, where it grows on the coast, often on sand dunes. Rugosa rose is widely used as an ornamental plant. It has been introduced to numerous areas of Europe and North America. The sweetly scented flowers are used to make pot-pourri in Japan and China, where it has been cultivated for about a thousand years.
