Dog Rose Hedge Rosa canina

From: 1.49
Dog Rose hedging also known as Wild Rose or Wild Briar is a lovely flowering hedge that bursts with delicately-scented pink and white flowers in early summer that give way to berry-like red rose hips in autumn, which are very popular with birds. Dog Rose is a hardy, native shrub that is notable for its vigorous and prickly growing habit.Click here for more information.More Information

Dog Rose Hedge Plants Description

Although Dog Rose is commonly grown as a beautiful, informal garden shrub, it also makes an excellent hedge to help to protect against intruders as its hooked thorns make it an impenetrable barrier whether it's planted on its own or as part of a mixed native hedge. Due to its density, Dog Rose also makes a wonderful shelter for wildlife, who are quite partial to its vitamin C-rich fruits, which are also edible for humans. It is from these shiny, red rose hips, which adorn the plant in autumn, that the popular 'Rosehip Oil' is derived.

Dog Rose is a very fast-growing shrub, achieving up to 40-60cm growth per year, and grows well in any drained, moist soil. Although it can be grown in partially shaded areas, low-maintenance Rosa canina is happiest in a sunny spot. It is a hardy shrub that can readily withstand strong winds and will also grow happily near the coast making this a good choice of shrub in more exposed coastal locations. Hedges Direct offers a wide range of hardy plants that can thrive in extreme weather conditions.

Rosa canina hedge plants are available all year round as cell grown or pot grown plants, with the bare root hedging plants only available from November to mid/late May, weather dependent.

As one of our UK native species, Dog Rose is also included in our Mixed Native Hedging Packs. For additional shrubs and hedge plants with edible benefits see also our edible hedging plants range.

Further Information
Further Information

You’ll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed next to the products below. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long you’re willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.

For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section. Prices shown are the price per plant unless otherwise stated.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

Rosa Canina should be pruned back between late Summer for routine pruning; late Autumn or Winter for renovation.
