Rosa Glauca Hedging

Rosa glauca, Red Leaf Rose, is a good for brightening up mixed country hedges. It is suitable for almost any soil that isn't waterlogged and it will grow near the coast.
Rosa glauca is good for hedges up to about 3 metres high.

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

Rosa glauca hedge plants are only delivered bareroot, during winter (Nov-March).

Choosing a size:
When you are ordering Rosa glauca plants for a hedge, we generally recommend that you use plants that are graded at 40/60cms because they are cheaper than large plants, easier to handle and they will establish well in poor conditions.
Use the larger, 60/80cms tall plants if you want a taller hedge quickly.
All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

Spacing a Rosa glauca hedge:
Plant Rosa glauca hedging at 3 plants per metre, 33cms apart.
You can also plant Rosa glauca 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 glauca plants:
This is one of the more beautiful wild roses. Its stems and leaf stalks are purpley-red and the leaves themselves are steely grey, with the colouring of the stems seeping into the recesses of the veins. The simple flowers in summer are bright pink and the rose hips that follow are like little cherries. It makes a fine specimen shrub and serves well in a mixed country hedge.

History & uses of Red Leaf Rose:
Also listed as Rosa rubrifolia in older books. It has won an RHS Award of Garden Merit for being both attractive and easy to grow.
