A deciduous plant, the Dog Rose (Rosa canina) has pretty pink open flowers turning to red hips in the winter. The hips of the Dog Rose are high in vitamin C and have some culinary uses. The Dog Rose is a valuable addition to a native or ornamental hedge or can be planted as a single specimen hedge.
With its long arching stems the Dog Rose makes an informal hedge with a loose structure. It has thorns and is therefore useful for security.
Dog Rose can make a valuable addition to a native farm hedging mix. Mixed native farm hedges are excellent for attracting birds and other wildlife as hedges play host to insects, berries and other sources of food for wildlife. Native mixed hedges also offer winter protection for wildlife.
The Dog Rose will grow in most soil conditions and aspects.
