Rosa Arvensis Hedging

Rosa arvensis, Field Rose, is a good country hedging plant, suitable for any soil. It is best used in combination with other native hedging plants which can include a range of wild roses if you wish. But a simple mix might be part hawthorn, part blackthorn, part hazel and part field rose for example. The field rose is one of the prettiest of the native British wild roses. It is under-used and not appreciated as much as it deserves and because it is so well suited for use in mixed hedges up to about 3 metres tall it should get more attention.

View our selection of rose hedging or see our full range of thorny hedging plants.

Spacing hedge containing Rosa arvensis:

If grown as a single species hedge, you should plant Rosa arvensis  at 3 plants per metre (i.e. 33cms apart) in a single row. Cut it back hard after planting and again a year later to encourage a thick hedge from ground level up.

However Field Roses are more usually grown as part of a mixed hedge - maybe making up 10% of the mixture. The whole hedge is then planted at 5 plants per metre in a staggered double row, with 33 cms between each plant along the row and 40cms between the rows.

General description of Rosa arvensis plants:

This dense growing native shrub is commonly found in country hedgerows. It is covered in single flowers in summer which are then followed in autumn by masses of shiny red hips. Grown on its own a field rose makes a rather mounded specimen, but it also rambles happily and so is an excellent addition to a mixed native hedge.

Rosa arvensis hedge plants are only delivered bareroot, during winter (Nov-March).
All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).
