Your Beach Rose (rosa rugosa) can be pruned back hard without slowing its growth rate. Go ahead and shorten the very long branches either to the height of the rest of the plant or slightly lower. Spring is an excellent time to prune roses so you can get your Beach Rose into shape now. Enjoy your garden!
