Hedge Rose vs Smooth Rose

Rosa rugosa x Rosa woodsii (Improved hybrid developed by PFRA)

Rosa blanda


Hedge Rose
Smooth Rose

Hedge Rose is a long-lived, fast-growing shrub. It bears similar flowers to the Alberta Wild Rose. Birds will love its deep red rose hips. Hedge Rose will thrive in a wide variety of soils and is a tall rose forming a useful hedge.

Excellent for shelterbelts, ecobuffers, and wildlife habitat plantings. Continuous flowering makes it attractive to pollinators. Many song and game birds utilize this tree for food and habitat.

In use since the early 1900s, this hybrid was originally developed at the PFRA's Indian Head Agroforestry Center.

The Smooth Rose is a hardy shrub and is nearly-thornless. This plant is a vigorous grower that is covered in the summer with fragrant, pale pink and white flowers. In the fall, this shrub produces bright-red rose hips that are high in Vitamin C making them great for syrups and preserves.

The Smooth Rose, also known as the Meadow Rose or Prairie Rose, is great for attracting bees and other pollinators to your garden.
