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).

Details
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. 6-8' tall x 6-8' wide (cutting propagated).
