Virgina Rose Bush will make a statement in any landscape
Virginia Rose Bush (Rosa virginiana) is a shrub that has dark green foliage. Virginia Rose Bush changes from a yellow to a red color and blooms pink flowers with yellow centers in the summer months. The pink flowers grow to be 2 and 1/2 inches in diameter. They give off a scent similar to roses. The rose hip petals are essential for bird wildlife as they are rich in Vitamin C and provide them with a food source in both summers and winter. People also use the roses to make jam or steep them to make tea. The Virginia Rose Bush is native on the East coast of the United States and in Canada.
Virginia Rose grows along roadsides and pastures naturally. The height of the rose bush ranges from 2 to 6 feet when mature, which doesn't take long for it grow to maturity.
It also can grow up to 6 feet wide if you don't prune it but keep in mind does require a lot of space for its roots when growing, so be sure to space it out from other plants. This plant doesn't need much maintenance, so those that want roses without the work will love this rose bush. The USDA hardy rating is zone 3, making it perfect for colder climates.
The Virginia Rose Bush prefers soil that is well-drained and does well in clay soil but can handle most types.
It is also very salt tolerant unlike most plants so it can be planted near sidewalks and driveways. This rose bush requires full sunlight but can do well in the partial sunshine. It can withstand windy conditions but doesn't do well in maritime situations. The Virginia Rose Bush isn't susceptible to diseases or insect problems unlike the classic rose bush.
