Virginia Rose is a woody perennial suckering shrub in the rose family native to eastern North America and grows 4-6 feet tall. It is the best of the native roses to grow in the garden. It has pink open flowers in June to Aug. and the stems have numerous hooked prickles. It likes full sun, is easy to transplant, and prefers well-drained acidic soils but is adaptable. It is also salt and punning tolerant. The fall color is lovely.
Grow this rose instead of the non-native varieties to provide food for the wildlife from the flowers to the rose hips and beauty in your landscape
