Rose, California Wild (Rosa californica) seeds


Family:  Rose (Rosaceae)

Hardy to Zones 5 to 10

(California Wildrose)  Deciduous bush to 10 feet, flowering in aromatic, pink and white, flattened, 5-petaled flowers giving way to high quality rosehips.  Native to Oregon south to Baja, California and Mexico.  Once established, an impenetrable screen or fence for hedges, barriers, songbird protection, shelterbelt.  The plant is immune to the usual mildew and rust diseases of roses.    Seeds require cold stratification before they will sprout.  Scarify on medium grit sandpaper, soak overnight in water and sow in cool, moist shade in the fall in outdoor conditions, for germination in the spring.  Or, place seeds in moist sand in a plastic baggie or lidded jar in the fridge for 90 days, then sow in warm conditions.  Barely cover seeds, tamp securely and keep evenly moist and in the sun or under grow lights until germination, which begins in 2 weeks and ongoing.  Prick out to a small pot and keep up-potting until the plant is sufficiently sized to transplant to the landscape.  Prune back in fall.  Space plants 10 feet apart.
