Rosa rubrifolia glauca - Wild Rose

Rosa rubrifolia glauca - Red Leaved Rose

A strikingly beautiful shrub, Rosa rglauca is a medium-sized to large, vigorous, deciduous shrub with an arching, bushy habit and few thorns. The divided leaves are a lovely blue-grey, flushed with purple. Small, rich pink, single flowers with a pale eye and golden stamens are borne from June to August; these are only lightly scented, but are good for pollinators. The sepals extend beyond the petals in a very attractive way. Round, red hips follow in autumn – birds love them. A trouble-free rose, it will also tolerate poor soils. Once known as Rosa rubrifolia, Rosa glauca is lovely at the back of a border, in a shrub planting or as part of an informal hedge.
