Plant Finder: about Rosa glauca

Common names

Red-leafed rose, Rose

Description

Rosa glauca (Red-leafed rose). This shrub grows about 4.5m high with arching canes and purplish red wood. The flowers bloom in early summer, in groups of 4 to 6, which are pink with delicate pale pink centres and golden stamens. The hips are brownish-red and oval.

Cultivation

You will find that roses are adaptable. The miniatures and smaller types will mix well with shrubs. Climbers can be used on fences, for covering unsightly sheds or old trees.

Interest and use

Grown for their profusion of late, bee attracting, summer flowers, often fragrant, and sometimes for their fruits (rose hips). Hedging. Suitable for coastal conditions.
