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.
Brief History: In wartime Britain 450 tons of rosehips were collected each year from British hedgerows to make rose-hip syrup during World War II to supplement the dietary requirements of vitamin C for the British when it was to obtain it from imported sources such as oranges.
SUGGESTED USEWhole hips are used to make wine, jellies, cordials and syrup and are used as a supplement in the food industry. Rosehip oil is extracted from the seeds contained in the hips and used in the cosmetic industry in skin products for mature skin. Dried whole hips can be added to pot pourri.
