Plant Description and Details

Delightful all dressed in dainty pink blooms, Wood's Rose presents a second showing by decking itself in showy burnt orange rose hips in the fall and winter. Plant it as a hedge or bank stabilizer and watch it create a brambly hedgewith small, straight prickles and a dense growth habit, doubling as shelter for birds and small animals. Birds and deer enjoy the Vitamin-C-rich hips, as did the Native Americans for various uses. Will spread vigorously by roots to form thickets.
