Small clusters of single, cerise-pink flowers with pale pink centres in June and July on almost thornless stems, followed by spherical, red, autumn rose-hips. This vigorous, arching, species rose makes a great, informal flowering hedge for an open, sunny site. Its greyish-purple leaves and ornamental rose-hips are excellent material for flower arranging.Garden care: Before planting shorten thick roots to 25cm (10in) and reduce top-growth to an outward-facing bud 8-15cm (3-6in) above ground-level. Plant during a frost-free spell, incorporating well-rotted organic matter and a balanced fertiliser into the planting hole. Ensure that the 'bud union' (the bulge at the base of the shoots) is 2.5cm (1in) below the soil.All our roses are field grown. In October/November they are dug up and potted. However, they will not produce any new roots until spring, so don't be surprised if the compost falls away from the roots when winter planting. Some suppliers send out 'bare root' plants unpotted, but we don't as it is easier to manage them on the nursery in pots.
