Dog Rose

Dog Rose (Rosa rugosa) is also known as the Hedgerow Rose and is a common form of rose found in hedgerows across the UK.  It is strong growing and has prickly and bristly stems.  With its oblong shaped leaves, it produces pink flowers in the spring and rosehips in the autumn.  Whilst it is uncommon to find a pure hedge made of Dog Rose, it makes a fantastic addition to any native hedge planting that adds a bit of extra colour and variety.  It grows well when mixed with other species such as Blackthorn, HawthornBeechHazelField Maple and Hornbeam.  We usually stock bare root Dog Rose hedging throughout the colder months of the year and can supply many other species to help you plant a mixed species native hedge.  Scroll down or call us on 01252 714552 for more information.
