Details

6-8' tall x 6-8' wide (cutting propagated). Broad, rounded growth habit. A large-growing antique rose, this native to the British Isles was a favorite of Shakespeare, who wrote of it back in the late 1500s. The single pink-with-white-center flowers are wonderfully fragrant. Even the foliage smells sweetly of apples, especially when damp with morning dew. Sweet Briar Rose produces a heavy crop of colorful hips for winter interest. Particularly tolerant of alkaline soils, so plant it with your lilacs.

Comments about High Country Gardens Rosa eglanteria:

I ordered one plant this past year. It arrived in good condition and i could tell it had been handled with tender loving care. The plant was little more than a rooted stem with leaves. Following the planting recommendations, i planted it with my other roses in a stressfull location (near my ac unit). With little care but regular watering it seems to be thriving. No blossoms yet, but in time i am hopeful. I am looking forward to the reported aromas and blossoms! The size may become and issue...

    Comments about High Country Gardens Rosa eglanteria:

    I ordered two from HCG six years ago, they arrived quite small. However, they took off and are now 7+ feet tall and as much wide. They attract wildlife and birds love the rose hips. My plants thrive in the poorest rock laden alkaline/caliche soil, with minimum fertilizer. This heat-tolerant hardy rose makes an excellent hedgerow.

    Q & A

    USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

    To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

    • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
    • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
