Rosa carolina-Pasture rose




For a few glorious weeks in late June, we have three of our native roses flowering at once, including this one. These roses are low growing (typically up to 2 feet) and can form a rolling green wave of pink flowers growing in fields, pastures, and along the edges of roadsides. Tolerates a good amount of shade and competition from other plants including smothering grasses. Handles lean, low nutrient soils with no complaints. Bears generous quantities of attractive “rose pink” flowers with a delicious scent that you just want to smell all day long. Bright red rose hips adorn the plants later in the summer and are nutritious food option for lots of critters including us.
