This rose is one of the only species worth growing from seed, all aspects being desirable. Thornless, purple-red stems of unusually-attractive ruby-grey leaves, and pale-centred, cerise pink flowers, age to bunches of dark red hips, which persist after the leaves have fallen in the autumn making a dazzling display. Superb as a bush, but magnificent as a standard if you have patience to train one.

Sowing Advice

Seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. Sow into well-drained, sandy compost at any time of year, cover to their own depth with sand or grit. No artificial heat is needed; seed tray is best left in a cool protected spot and kept moist. Seeds usually germinate in spring, regardless of when sown.
