Rosa x hibernica - Wild Shrub Rose

Rosa x hibernica - The Irish Rose

A rare hybrid between the native, wild roses, the dog rose and the burnet rose, Rosa x hibernica is a large, deciduous, shrub rose, with a suckering habit. The mid-green foliage is divided into slightly serrated, ovate leaflets. In midsummer, it bears clusters of lightly scented, deep rose-pink, single blooms with golden stamens; the flowers are attractive to pollinators. The flowers are followed by round, deep red hips in the autumn. The Irish rose would be perfect in a naturalistic planting.
