Thumbnail Filmstrip of Rosa blanda - Meadow Rose Images
This is as close as you can get to a "thornless" rose - any "thorns" that do occur are bristly prickles at the base
of older stems, while the new and upper stems remain smooth. Naturally occurring in prairies, meadows and open woodlands, Meadow Rose produces
showy pink flowers that have a pleasant fragrance, and are 2"-3" across with yellow centres. Rosa blanda is the host plant for the larval stage of the
Apple Sphinx Moth. The berry-like rosehip fruits it produces turn bright red in late summer and provide provide food for birds well into the winter.
Rosa blanda does spread by rhizomes so be sure to give it plenty of room!
