Carolina RoseRosa carolina 2-4' x 5-10' Sometimes called Pasture Rose.
Our native eastern species found in every state east of the Great Plains. Single light pink 5-petaled flowers emerge May-June. Vigorous spreading canes are ideal for stabilizing banks, slopes and natural hedges. Even among fancier roses, the simplicity of this one is just right. Small bright red hips in fall. This species is much more resistant to foliage diseases than other roses. Often seen in colonies along streams, roads and open woods throughout New England.
Can easily be kept in check by mowing around the edges, but runners do pop up—plant away from areas where you walk barefoot. Highly adaptable to both wet and dry locations. Full sun to partial shade. Z2. (9-18" bare-root plants)
