Our friends Ernie and Marietta O'Byrne introduced us to Rosa pomifera which is suitable for a woodland or full sun setting. The blue green leaves smell of apples when crushed and make a nice backdrop for the single pink roses. It is in the late summer that this rose really shows off when its extra-large hips the size of small tomatoes begin to turn red orange.

Late spring.  7 ft. x 5 ft.

Pink flowers

Sun, Part Shade     Zones 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
