The Japanese Rose is deservedly popular for its fragrant flowers and bright orange rose hips that are rich in Vitamin C. The hips are used to make rose hip syrup or a wonderful, nutritious jam that, in moderation, provides a useful dose of vitamins when eaten. Without pruning the plants naturally form a dense thicket ideal for nesting Blackbirds and Song Thrushes, and can be grown as an attractive flowering hedge in windswept or coastal areas.
Roses are a traditional favourite in an English garden and there are over 100 species. Much of their popularity is due to the fact that they give beautiful displays of colourful, fragrant flowers year after year.
