Im planing to caltivate a Rosa Rubiginosa and a Rosa Pendulina. Any coment about those wild roses? Or any special piece of advice?



Eglantine (R. eglanteria/R. rubiginosa) is a vigorous rambling scrambling plant, native to England and Europe. Occurs on chalky soils, so I suppose a well drained site is preferred. We had it in our garden near Winchester, when I was a child, on very shallow soil over solid chalk, and it was rampant. Hips were bright orange, long-lasting. I used to pick them as Christmas decoration. Leaves and flowers fragrant. Rosa pendulina is a small almost thornless rose, with small single flowers, dark pink. Large hips, long and attractive. Again, seems to prefer well-draned soils. Native to where you are, I think. Worthy
