Dog Rose plants are prickly, thorny, rose and popular choice to include in mixed hedging. The Dog Rose is an excellent plant to include in hedgerows, woodland areas, or boundary hedging especially seaside gardens. They are tolerant of the windy, exposed areas, and salt sprays of the coast. It is a thorny climbing plant with curved spines and uses other shrubs to support them as they climb through. They make an excellent rose hedge, especially for security with its thorns.
Dog Rose is first seen when summer approaches with its first blooms which burst into life as large pink or white petalled flowers with a slight sweet fragrance. Striking red fruits (rose hips) follow, in the autumn providing a rich source of food for birds. Rose hips are high in vitamin C and may find some use in your kitchen.
Where to Plant
Plant full sun to partial shade, tolerates most soil types, especially heavy soils. Plant 3-4 per metre for single row, 5-7 per metre double staggered row, and a denser hedge.
