A beautiful arching shrub that's native to Britain, it has rather thorny stems which bear apple-scented leaves.
Fragrant pink flowers are produced in early summer, followed by scarlet hips in autumn.
Suitable shrub to use for wildlife hedging.
Prefers a full sun position with fertile, humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil.
Value To Wildlife:
Flowers are an important nectar source for insects and bees, whilst its fruits are a food for birds.
You’ll receive a 2 year old well established whip that's between 20 to 60cm in height.
This is a deciduous tree and so will shed its leaves in autumn, in order to protect itself from the cold winter weather. Come spring, it’ll burst back into bud and begin to flourish once more.
