Rose - Illinois (Rosa setigera)
Illinois Rose sets a series of stunning fuchsia flowers throughout June and July. The bubblegum-colored petals frame a riot of sunny yellow stamens. These vibrant blooms fade to nearly white as each blossom matures, creating a lovely pink-spectrum palette across a single plant. This native Rose is rather singular in its ability to grow as vines. If planted in the open, the thorny stems will cascade, taking root where the tips touch the ground, to create a bushy bower.
