ROSA

The rose is the queen of flowers, the most loved and widely planted shrub in all temperate parts of the world. More than 14,000 varieties are grown. Although mostly deciduous, roses can be evergreen in mild climates. Their stems, sometimes quite prickly, may be erect, arching, trailing, or scrambling. Leaves are divided into three, five, or seven leaflets, usually with toothed margins.

Rosa glauca

From central Europe. This deciduous shrubs grows to 6 ft. tall and 5 ft. wide. Valued particularly for its leaves, which combine gray green and coppery purple. Small, single pink flowers in spring are followed by small, beautiful oval hips that turn red in the autumn.
