Hybrid Spinosissimas

A unique group of roses very close to the wild Scots Briar from which they were developed; fine-textured shrubs that add a quality unexpected from roses in the garden. Most are extremely compact, varying from 3′ to 6′ high, and bear charming potentilla-like flowers in a range of colors, with a propensity for marbled effects. The hips or fruits of these roses are dark maroon or black and very effective in arrangements. We include here all the Spinosissima hybrids in our collection, including all of the modern shrub rose versions like the Fruhlings series from Kordes of Germany.
