Species Roses Rosa spp.
Species roses are those that exist in nature. They thrive in a wide range of soils and are good for the high country. They typically only bloom once in early spring. After flowering, brightly colored seed hips develop; these add landscape interest and provide a food source for wild birds. These roses are very low maintenance and come in colors of red, pink, yellow, white, or bicolored. They can grow to be 5-12’ high and 3-12’ wide.
