This dense, spreading rose has attractive fern-like, dark green leaves, above which, in early summer, it bears sweetly perfumed, golden-eyed, white to creamy-white flowers, although rarely also pale pink. In autumn, the bushes are heavily laden with distinctive, globular, shiny, maroon-black fruits, which make excellent bird food.
These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. They should be sown into well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered to their own depth with sand or grit. No artificial heat is needed; the seed tray is best left in a cool spot outside and kept moist. Seeds germinate very slowly indeed in the spring after a chilling in the cold compost, regardless of when they are sown. Some seeds may take more than a year to germinate.
