Wild Rose- Early (Rosa blanda)
This perennial shrub prefers full to partial sun, and medium to dry soils. In its native range, it can often be found in areas with high disturbance, such as fence rows, woodland edges, thickets, and prairies. Rosa blanda, like other Rosa species, are somewhat aggressive and spread via root suckers. They may be less suitable for small landscapes.
