Description: The dog rose is a climbing deciduous shrub native to the Middle East, which can also be found growing in many temperate regions of the world. It reaches a height of 2-3 metres; the stems are covered in hooked thorns, which the plant uses to climb. The leaves are oddly pinnate, dark to glaucous green in colour and comprised of 5-7 ovate leaflets with serrated edges, each leaflet being 10-40mm in length. The 5-petaled flowers are pale pink to white in colour and 4-6cm in diameter. The flowers are replaced in the autumn with oval shaped, red-orange fruits referred to as hips which are 1-2cm in length.
Interesting Fact: Did you know that some veterinary herbalists give rosehip powder to older dogs as a dietary supplement to help boost their energy levels and help aching joints? The powder contains chemical compounds that can help maintain a healthy immune system and can have anti-rheumatic properties.
