The dog rose is a variable climbing, wild rose that is native to Britain.
It is a fast grower that produces flowers in a variety of colours ranging from pale pink, deep pink and white. In autumn the flowers die back leaving red-orange rose hips, which are very high in vitamin C. The rose hips can be used to make syrup, tea and marmalade. Plant in fairly rich soil in full sun.
