Rose, California Wild (Rosa californica) potted bush in a 9-inch-deep pot, organic

$20.00

Family:  Rose (Rosaceae)

Hardy to Zones 6 to 9

(Wild Southern Oregon Rose) Native to Oregon, California and Baja, with a bush-forming habit, making long, curving, spiny stems to 10 feet tall. Fragrant pink flowers are borne singly or in small clusters, long-lived, in spring and early summer, giving way to small, round, deep red hips, the flesh of which becomes softer, sweeter and easier to work with after frost.  Remove hairs and seeds before consumption and before dehydrating for later use.  Plant prefers full sun and ample water, although it can survive drought, and is tolerant of clay soils.  Deer-tolerant plant provides food, protection and shelter for birds and small mammals.  Traditional use (TWM, TNAM): fruits (rosehips) edible when ripe and are a concentrated source of vitamin c. Root very astringent and so the various water preparations have been used to stem bleeding, both external and internal.  Space 6 feet apart.

    Eveline

    Would you consider growing and offering Rosa Damascena? I heard so many great benefits about this species.

      Hi Liz,
      I do have a few recommendations. Rosa rugosa is highly adaptable and makes the best rosehips, if that’s what you’re after. California wild rose is probably not hardy to your area. For flower petal use, I would recommend any of the old heirloom scented roses. These are very tough on the landscape and really beautiful in season. I don’t have any particular seller to recommend, but these can usually be found at native nurseries. Richo
