The Baldhip

The dwarf rose flowers throughout the season with new flowers appearing even as earlier ones have 'gone to seed'. There seems to be a difference in leaf shape on some of the specimens included here. Hopefully I have not mixed and matched the species.

A prolific grower on the forest edge, this native rose produces a red fruit in the fall, though the flower is simple compared to many of the cultivars of domestic roses. They grow on a shrub that may be 6 feet or more high.

These begin blooming in early spring along with the skunk cabbage and the trilliams and have flowers throughout the spring. The first buds come out with the leaves.
