Scotch Rose Seeds SEEDS, Perennial Shrub
Rosa x harisonii is a Scots rose or cultivar of Rosa spinosissima (syn. R. pimpinellifolia). The species, or its wild form, grows throughout Europe and Asia and gains its common name, Scots rose, for its proliferation in Scotland. The species usually has white flowers.
This delicate, small suckering shrub boasts pretty, single, creamy-white flowers, up to 2 in. across (5 cm), in late spring to early summer. Sweetly scented, these are borne in profusion on prickly stems bearing handsome, fern-like foliage of bright green leaves that are composed of rounded, delicate leaflets. As an extra bonus, the blossoms are followed by sizeable, spherical, purplish-black fruits. Disease, salt and drought tolerant, this beautiful species rose is perfect as a groundcover or as a low hedge. A hardy, tough and reliable plant, it is extremely suitable for use on poor soil and coastal areas.
