All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

You can also plant Rosa rubiginosa 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 rubiginosa plants:
The Eglantine or Sweet Briar Rose is a vigorous country hedging rose that makes an impenetrable thicket of thorny stems. It has apple scented leaves that smell especially good after rain. It produces sprays of fragrant, delicate, variably pink flowers for about 3 months in the summer. These ripen into deep orange hips that stay on the branches well into winter. Sweet Briar makes a good, rough and ready hedge all itself and also looks great in a mixed hedge with hawthorn or blackthorn.

History & uses of Eglantine Rose:
You may also see this rose listed as Rosa eglanteria.
