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.
