Seasonal Charm:

  • Spring to Early Summer: Begins the season with vibrant pink flowers, welcoming an array of pollinators and setting a lively stage.
  • Summer to Fall: Features distinctive "bald" hips, devoid of the usual sepals, providing visual intrigue and a feast for wildlife as the seasons shift.
  • Autumn: The foliage transitions to a vibrant display of yellows and reds, adding autumnal warmth to the landscape.
  • Winter: Its thorny stems and the persistence of hips through winter lend a sturdy, textured look to the colder landscape.
