Rosa Glauca Hedging

Rosa glauca, the Red Leaved Rose, is an outstanding shrub rose that associates well with other shrubs such as Viburnum plicatum or even a small clematis. It 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. All this makes it a good rose for brightening up mixed country hedges up to about 3 metres high. For something completely different plant a single species hedge of Rosa glauca with an underplanting of spring flowering bulbs. It is suitable for almost any soil that isn't waterlogged and it will grow near the coast.

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.

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.
