Product Description

Rosa canina, commonly known as the Dog Rose, is a wild rose species that graces landscapes across Europe, Northwest Africa, and parts of Asia. Revered for its delicate charm and cultural significance, this deciduous shrub has been cherished for centuries for both its ornamental value and potential health benefits.

The Dog Rose presents an arching habit adorned with pinnate leaves and elegant, five-petaled flowers. The blossoms, typically pale pink to white, bloom in late spring to early summer, creating a soft and romantic display. Following the blooms, the plant produces distinctive, bright red rose hips. These hips are not only visually appealing but also rich in vitamin C, making them historically valuable for various culinary and medicinal purposes.

Rosa canina is well-adapted to a variety of habitats, from woodlands to hedgerows, showcasing its versatility in different ecological niches. Its hardiness, coupled with its ability to tolerate a range of soil conditions, has made it a popular choice for naturalizing landscapes and providing wildlife habitat.

In addition to its visual appeal, the Dog Rose has woven itself into cultural symbolism and folklore. Its name, "Dog Rose," is believed to stem from the notion that the plant's root was used historically to treat bites from rabid dogs. Beyond folklore, the rose's timeless beauty and contributions to herbal traditions continue to make it a cherished presence in gardens and natural settings alike.
