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

Late spring.  7-10 ft. x 7 ft.
