A cheery hedge that produces an impressive floral show from dense foliage.
Dog Rose hedges display a thicket of rich green leaves and hooked thorns during spring and summer – ideal as a deterrent, while also forming a great screen against incoming wind and noise.
Summertime brings pale pink to white flowers, which cover the hedge with beauty and fill the air with a floral aroma. By autumn, the flowers evolve into bright red rose hips, containing the seeds of the plant.
Recommended by the RHS as a ‘Plant for Pollinators’, the dense habit creates a perfect shelter for wildlife, while the rose hips are delicious to birds.
Hardy natured to grow well even in coastal locations, while withstanding extremely cold wintery conditions and strong winds. This hardy hedge can be planted in most soil types, if kept moist and well-drained.
For best results plant in a spot of the garden that will receive full sun, although Dog Rose can still thrive in partial shade. This is a fast-growing plant with up to 60cm of growth per year, reaching a good garden height of around 4m.
Don’t forget to use one of our handy bamboo cane and spiral guard sets when planting a bare root hedge. The cane will keep the bare root upright as it grows, while the spiral guard will protect the base of the plant from wildlife to achieve as thick a hedge as possible.
Supplied as a bare root hedge, 60-90cm tall, ready for planting.
