You can purchase these but they grow to about 3 metres (10ft) and yes I agree they are very pretty. They are basically a wild rose. I'm not sure they would fit into a small garden like mine but you may have the space.

I used to see these growing wild where I lived before, very pretty plant.

Being Wild would be fab 2 Toto as Bottom End of my garden is Wildlife/Flower Friendly :) Does this have any speacial name ? :)

Think it's Rosa Canina, Jacque.

Only Rosa canina as I put on the photo. I don't know of any other.

I believe you can keep it pruned shorter than its 10ft height Jacque. They do send up lots of suckers though and the hips produce thousands of seeds every year which apparently sprout quite easily.

Lovely. How long do they take to come into flower? I bought one last winter as a bare-root plant and it's now flowered yet. I guess it's just getting established with its root system.

Thanks Elleme.
Sorry but I don't know how long it will take to flower. This one was growing in the wild.
