Native Shrubs

 

Rosa virginiana - Virginia Rose



The Virginia Rose is a flowering shrub that boasts luscious pink petals in the spring and vibrant red berries in the fall. The red berries last through the winter months and add a lively splash of color against the white winter scenery. They also provide food for the hungry birds during winter. The shrub has attractive dark green glossy foliage in the summer, turning colors in the fall. The fragrance from the blooming dark pink single petals is remarkable. These beauties bloom in June and will attract butterflies and hummingbirds. The roots grow rapidly underground so they need lots of room to expand. The Virginia Rose is resistant to diseases and has no known insect problems. It is also drought tolerant and adaptable to a variety of soil types. This rose will stand out all year round.
