Rosa Canina Seeds - Pink Flowering Rosehip Rose Bush
Rosa Canina is a strong, vigorous, and perennial rose bush. It makes for an ideal climbing bush. You can trellis the vines up or wind them around columns and fences if you like. The heights of the bush range from 3 to 16 ft tall depending on factors such as growing space and care (this bush can be potted). The vines grow out longer if supported. Rosa Canina makes for a great border bush or hedge.
The Rosa Canina rose bush is the industry choice for the commercial production of edible, medicinal rosehips. Rosehips are important for making tea and beauty oils. They contain amazingly high amounts of Vitamin C (over 900% daily value in 1 cup of rose hips). Also, they are very high in Vitamin A and have a fairly decent amount of calcium and magnesium as well. What an added bonus to an already beautiful and charming rose bush for your garden!
How to Care for Rosa Canina Pink Rose Bushes:
Keep soil bedding moist by watering regularly. Fertilize often. It's best to stick to the fertilizers that are formulated for rose bushes. As a general rule, you simply don't want to pick a strong fertilizer. Pruning time is early spring.
Germination Procedure: Soak seeds in a glass of water for 1 day. Sow in summer for germination next spring. Otherwise, apply warm stratification to the seeds for 2 mos. Then place in the freezer for 2 months (cold stratification) before sowing to simulate the changing of the seasons. Seed sowing depth is 1/4-1/2 an inch deep.
