Rosa Pimpinellifolia Hedging

Rosa pimpinellifolia, the Scottish Burnet Rose, is a superb hedging plant. Suitable for any soil with decent drainage.
Rosa pimpinellifolia is good for hedges up to about 3 metres high, although it won't grow that tall as a bush in the open.

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

Rosa pimpinellifolia 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).

Spacing a Rosa pimpinellifolia hedge:

Plant Rosa pimpinellifolia hedging at 3 plants per metre, 33cms apart.
You can also plant Rosa pimpinellifolia 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 pimpinellifolia plants:

The Scotch Rose or Burnet Rose, Rosa pimpinellifolia, is a very thorny native rose that makes an excellent dense thicket; it's a natural-born secure hedge plant. It bears heavily scented white & pink flowers in summer, followed by inedible maroon-black fruit. If you want a wild roses for dry soil, really cold or exposed sites, this is the one to go for.
Be warned - this rose is seriously thorny. If you don't own a pair of extra-thick gardening gloves, get some before you start handling this beast!

History & uses of Scottish Burnet Rose:

You may also see the Scotch rose listed as Rosa spinosissima, which means the prickliest - a well deserved name.
