Rosa Pimpinellifolia Hedging

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.

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.
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!

 If you want a wild rose for dry soil, really cold or exposed sites, this is the one to go for. 

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

Bareroot hedge plants are only delivered 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 hedging at 3 plants per metre, 33cms apart.
You can also plant at 5 plants per metre in a staggered double row, with 33 cms between each plant along the row and 40cms between the rows.

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