Plant Description

Carolina Rose is a tough and durable rose that occurs throughout the eastern United States in low moist areas. Its beautiful 2 inch, pink, single flowers occur in early summer and are followed by bright red rose hips in the fall. This plant makes dense thickets of erect bristly stems to 4 or 5 feet tall. Use it as a hedge or screen and watch the wildlife that will appreciate it. It will grow in just about any soil but needs full sun to produce good flowers, fruits, and a soft red fall leaf color.
