Wild Roses

These are the very first roses, the wild roses from many parts of the northern hemisphere, together with their immediate hybrids. Wild Roses, also known as species roses, tend to form rather large shrubs. They are notable for the elegance of their growth, their dainty foliage and the simple beauty of their single flowers, which are generally followed by colourful hips in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colours. As well as being ideal for shrubbery and wild areas of the garden, they are also a welcome addition to a mixed rose border, bringing a certain lightness.
