Rosa eglanteria – Sweet Briar – Apple Scented Foliage

This year I have decided to try to germinate some of my seeds in paper towels. Not only can I fit numerous paper towels in one of those plastic shoe boxes with a lid but I can check them every few days to see what has germinated. Once they do germinate I will pot them up into peat pots but in the meantime I think this will save a lot of room.

This is one of the seeds that I have put into a damp paper towel on February 21, 2006.

October 29, 2008 – The one I grew from seed and planted into my garden bloomed for the first time last year. Although the roses were few given the massive stems, the foliage was indeed apple scented.

This year the bush was loaded with small pink single flowers, followed by masses of orange-red rose hips.

This is a rambler, but the foliage is well worth it, as are the roses and the hips. This rose, although small in comparison to hybrids, should be included in everyones garden for multi-season interest as well as the fragrance of the leaves.
