I have R. carolina, find find it easy to grow. Mine is under 3 years old and only a foot tall. It did bloom this year and produced hips. The flowers where a bright pink, but not shockingly so. The hips are turning a nice red color. I tried the hips. The hard seeds were the size of popcorn carnals and the fleshy part waxy. My son said it tasted bitter, I didn't notice a favor.

For humans, the best part of native roses is the fragrance.

I got mine from Prairie Moon Nursery.Prairie Moon Nursery :: Seeds :: Rosa carolina (Pasture Rose)
