Rosa canina - Dog Rose (Pink)
Rosa canina - Dog Rose is the only native Rose that we produce, and it is the most widely used as it is easy to grow and is adaptable to most locations.
Ideal for planting as part of a native mixture or on its own.
Deciduous with small green toothed leaves. Large and sweetly scented white or pink flowers appear in summer with red oval berry like hips forming in small clusters.
Dog Rose is a good choice for wildlife, offering protective shelter and habitat plus a good source of nectar for insects. Bird species such as blackbirds, redwings and waxwings eat the hips.
