    Description
    Dog Rose Leaves, Flowers and Berries (Rosa canina). Egg-shaped hips. Prickly stems are green to purple in colour. Scented flowers have five petals. Leaves have 5 to 7 leaflets, with single or double-toothed sawlike edges. Tangled stems. A scrambling native shrub with long, arching stems, the dog rose grows up to 3 m in height, or forms tangled thickets. The stems have sturdy, curved thorns. The flowers are pink or white and the red fruits, called rose hips, appear in autumn. Common in hedgerows during the summer, dog rose also thrives in woodlands and on scrub throughout the UK, although it is more common in the south. These deciduous shrubs grow on a variety of soils, unless very dry or waterlogged, and spread by means of suckers. ¥ Rose hips are rich in vitamin C and can be made into cordial, syrup and wine. The seeds inside rose hips can be used as itching powder. Briars, brambles and raspberries are closely related to the dog rose. Gall wasps often attack dog roses and produce galls called ÔRobinÕs pin-cushionsÕ.
