Rosa roxburghii W/O-9218 Chestnut Rose
The plants we offer have been grown by us from seed collected in China. A species of shrub rose that is native to China. Produces twisted stems with peeling, grey-brown bark, pinnate leaves and beautiful, single, lightly-fragrant, pale pink flowers in summer, followed by unusual round, spiney hips, reminiscent of chestnut fruits, hence its common name chestnut rose. Ultimate height 5 metres. Well-drained, moisture retentive soil in sun to part shade.
