There is hardly a person who has never seen a dog rose. This plant is widely used in landscape design, it is also popular with amateur gardeners. But abundant flowering shrubs can not only beautify the garden, but also produce a crop of extremely healthy fruits. There is nothing difficult in cultivating a dogrose; even a novice gardener can grow it.

Plant description

Rosehip is a numerous genus of deciduous plants from the Pink family. Most of them are shrubs; lianas, grassy and tree plants are much less common. All have a common feature - shoots are densely dotted with sharp thorns of different lengths. They are even on the annual branches, but there they are more like bristles.

Rosehip is obliged to the name of the presence of a set of densely arranged spines dotting shoots

In the northern hemisphere, wild rose is found everywhere. He is equally happy with both temperate and subtropical climate. It grows almost like a weed, successfully adapting even to adverse environmental conditions in cities. Cinnamon dogrose is especially common in central Russia. Among the "relatives", it stands out for the highest content of vitamin C in fruits.

Rosehip in nature is widely distributed, it grows mainly where the soil is wet and fertile, forming whole clumps and almost impassable thickets

The leaves of the hips have a rich dark green color (found gray-gray, olive, or reddish), of complex shape (pinnate), not too large (5–8 cm in length). The wrong side is often pubescent. The edge is cut with small teeth.

The leaves of the dog-rose, depending on the variety, can be bluish or reddish.

The average height of an adult plant is 1.5–2.5 m. The shoots are quite thin, almost twigs. It is quite difficult to break them. The bark is reddish-brown, smooth, shiny, sometimes with a greenish or purple hue. The root system is powerful, developed. Rod roots go into the ground by 2.5–3 m, adventitians reach a length of 25–40 cm.

The plant forms a very abundant basal shoots, due to which it grows rapidly in breadth.

Rosehip is widely used in landscape design.

Rosehip blooms in June or early July and lasts 10–20 days. The flowers look very impressive and spread an amazing aroma. In wild rosehips, they are most often simple, five-petalled. The buds are single or assembled 2-4 pieces in inflorescences in the form of a shield or panicle. Breeders bred and terry varieties of wild rose. The color of the petals is very different - from snow-white to dark purple, almost black. In nature, various shades of pink are common, from delicate pastel to bright crimson. The average diameter of a flower is 4–5 cm. They open daily from 4:00 to 5:00 o'clock, and “fall asleep” from 19:00 to 20:00.

Blooming wild rose adorns the site and spreads an amazing scent

Rose hips ripen by the end of the summer or in the first half of September. If they are not collected on time, they will remain on the plant until the first frost. These are almost spherical, sometimes elongated or flattened berries of various shades of red and orange. Botanists, they are known as hypanthium, formed in the process of growth of receptacle. The average diameter is 10–15 mm. The first harvest can be expected in 3-4 years after planting the seedling in the ground. The term of the productive life of the bush - at least 25-30 years.

Rosehip is a non-self-pollinating plant. Bees and other insects spread its pollen. Therefore, if it is planted with the expectation of the next harvest, and not to decorate the site, it is desirable to have several varieties.

Rose hips look no less decorative than its flowers

Rosehip has a record high vitamin C content, which has a positive effect on immunity, general body resistance to diseases, reduces fatigue, increases efficiency (both mental and physical), and stimulates tissue regeneration and renewal of blood cells. Rosehip oil helps with wound healing and any skin diseases.

Photo Gallery: Common Rose Hip Grades

Decorative rosehip varieties are widely used in landscape design both in single plantings and for the formation of hedges. Most of them are bred abroad, so they are not particularly frost resistant. Most often these are interspecific hybrids obtained by crossing a musk and wrinkled brier. The most common ones are:

  • Jundzilii. The plant is compact, almost spherical. Height and diameter - 0.5–0.8 m. The crown is very dense. Widely used for the formation of hedges. Carmine red flowers,
  • Nana. Hybrid height of not more than 0.5 m. The flowering is very abundant and long-lasting. Petals pale pink color. Flowers semi-double,

  • Northern Lights. Shrub up to 0.7 m. The flowers are semi-double, in shape resemble saucer. Pale pearl petals cast salmon, pinkish, pale yellow.

Landing procedure

Rosehip is characterized by unpretentiousness, but a necessary condition for obtaining the highest possible yields is a sufficient amount of heat and sunlight. The sun is also needed for ornamental varieties, otherwise the flowers become shallow, the color of the petals fades, the flowering becomes not so abundant. Therefore, it is best to place the bush in the open, ideally on a small hill.

Briar Soil prefers nutritious, but at the same time quite light. Although the plant survives and bears fruit on any soil, except saline, marshy and alkaline, but the loamy or sandy substrate is the best option for it. The areas where groundwaters approach the surface closer than 1.5 m are categorically unsuitable. For the same reason, lowlands are not recommended - melted water and moist moist air remain there for a long time.

Rosehip productivity depends on the availability of pollinating varieties. If several plants are planted simultaneously, the distance between them is at least 0.8 m (preferably 1 m). For the formation of a hedge, the interval is reduced by 1.5 times. The distance between the rows of landings is about 2 m.

Most often in regions with a temperate climate, wild roses are planted in the spring. In the south of Russia or in Ukraine, the procedure can be postponed to the beginning or even to the middle of autumn. Even in this case, there is enough time in the subtropics until the first frost. In 2.5–3 months, the sapling will have time to adapt to new habitat conditions.

The root system of the rosehip seedling must be developed, healthy

The recommended depth of the landing pit is about 30 cm, the diameter is 15–20 cm larger. They always prepare it in advance, for spring planting - from autumn, otherwise at least a few weeks before the planned procedure. The top layer of fertile soil is mixed with 2–3 kg of humus; simple superphosphate and potassium sulfate are also added (20–30 g each).

The natural alternative is about 0.5 liters of sifted wood ash.

Stepwise landing process

  1. Before planting, the roots of the seedling are soaked in water, pruned to a length of 20 cm, coated with a mixture of powder clay and manure.
  2. When it dries, the plant is placed in a planting pit and covered with soil. Be sure to ensure that the root neck was 3-4 cm above the level of the soil.
  3. Shrub is abundantly watered (25–30 l).
  4. Pristvolny circle mulch, creating a layer about 3 cm thick.
  5. Shoots pruned to a length of 10-15 cm, the leaves are torn off.

To prevent the active formation of sprouts, slate sheets are placed along the walls of the planting pit.

When planting a dogrose, the root neck cannot be buried

Transplant features

To transplant an adult wild rose bush, choose a cool overcast day. The roots can not be left in the sun, even for a short time. They quickly dry up, reducing the chances that the dog rose will successfully take root in a new place. The plant is removed from the soil along with an earthy ball. The procedure is carried out either in early spring, before the growth buds “wake up”, or in the fall, after harvest and leaf fall. Flowering bushes do not disturb.

The plant is not very demanding and capricious. Care is reduced to keeping the tree close clean and loosening the soil in it, watering, feeding and regular pruning.

Rosehip is a moisture-loving plant, and it does not tolerate stagnant water at the roots. Therefore, the plant is watered infrequently, but abundantly. In strong heat, when there is no precipitation, 30–40 l of water is consumed every 10–12 days before the first crop is obtained, and 60–70 l per fruiting bush. In the first year of life, young seedlings are watered more often, once every 5–7 days.

After each watering, the soil in the wheel circle is loosened to a depth of 3–5 cm. To retain moisture, it is mulched. Also, mulch helps save time for weeding, holding back the growth of weeds.


If the planting pit was prepared correctly, the dog rose starts to feed from the second season in the open field. Fertilizers are applied three times.

  1. The first dressing is carried out for 1.5-2 weeks before flowering. The plant is watered with a solution of urea or any other nitrogen-containing fertilizer. Once in 2-3 years in the near-spring circle in the spring in addition distribute about 20 liters of humus or rotted manure.
  2. The second time fertilizers are applied immediately after flowering. Any complex means for fruit and berry bushes (Agricola, Zdravina, Effecton) will do. In 10 l of water, 20–30 ml of fertilizer is diluted; the norm for an adult plant is 12–15 l of solution.
  3. The last time the bushes rosehip feeds 2-3 weeks after the end of fruiting. For proper preparation for winter, plants need potassium and phosphorus. The solution is prepared by diluting 20–25 g of simple superphosphate and half as much potassium nitrate in 10 liters of water. Alternative - complex phosphorus-potassium fertilizers (AVA, Autumn) or infusion of wood ash.

If the state of the plant does not suit you, during the vegetative season after flowering, it can be sprayed every 2-3 weeks with a solution of any biostimulator (potassium humate, Appin, Heteroauxin, Zircon). This has a positive effect on the yield and quality of the fruit.

For feeding dogrose any universal complex fertilizer for berry bushes is quite suitable.

Correct pruning

The dog rose is characterized by a high growth rate and active formation of basal shoots. Therefore, pruning for him - a mandatory procedure. It is significantly hampered by the presence of thorns. To avoid injury, use pruners with long handles.

The first time the plant is pruned immediately after planting, leaving no more than 3 growth buds on each shoot. After another 2-3 years, the bush is thinned, leaving 3-5 of the strongest and most developed shoots. They are shortened to a length of 15–20 cm. A properly formed plant should consist of 15–22 branches of different ages, but not older than 7 years.

Do not forget about sanitary pruning. In the spring you need to get rid of all broken, dried, frozen, damaged by diseases and pests of branches. Also, to the point of growth cut weak, deformed, thickening crown, located too low shoots.

Autumn sanitary pruning is desirable to reduce to the required minimum. Even properly processed cuts do not tolerate the winter cold too well.

The tops of the hips in a hedge regularly pinch. In this way, the height is regulated and more intensive branching is stimulated.

Preparing for the winter

Most wild rose varieties bred by breeding are distinguished by good or even very good frost resistance, therefore they do not need a special shelter for the winter. Even if the bush suffers from cold weather, it quickly recovers due to the root growth. Growth buds are most often frozen on annual shoots.

Ornamental rosehip varieties suffer from colds unlike more often. For them, even -15ºС - critically low temperature. Therefore, special training is recommended. Pristvolny circle cleaned of plant debris, create a layer of mulch with a thickness of about 15 cm. It is best to use peat, humus, fallen leaves. As soon as enough snow falls, it is scooped to the roots. If the height of the bush allows, it can be completely covered with snow.

Harvesting and storage

Rosehip crop matures in several "waves". Collect it from August to the end of September or even to the beginning of October. It is important to catch before the first frost. Fruits affected by cold significantly lose in use. In preparing for the harvest, you should not forget about the means of individual protection - thick clothes, gloves. You can shoot those fruits from which the sepals depart.

Rose hips need to be collected before the cold

For long-term storage, dog rose is most often dried in the oven or in a natural way. Then the berries are poured into any suitable containers that must be kept tightly closed. Otherwise, mold and rot develop quickly. To add flavor and aroma, pour fruits with pieces of ginger, grated citrus peel. After drying, you need to wait at least a week, only then the dog rose can be used to make decoctions and infusions.

In the process of drying, the benefits of rose hips are not lost, and the shelf life increases markedly


Dogrose cuttings root not too well. This is especially true of decorative hybrids bred with the participation of wrinkled wild rose. The probability of success is no more than 15–20%.

Rosehip stalk - the upper or middle part of an annual green shoot length of 15–20 cm, cut at a 45º angle. Harvest them in the middle of summer. Each must have at least three growth buds.

Dogrose cuttings can be harvested throughout the summer, but the best time for this is July.

  1. Before planting, the lower leaves break off, the base of the cutting for 12–16 hours is immersed in a solution of any biostimulator.
  2. Rooted cuttings in a mixture of peat with baking powder (sand, perlite, vermiculite), creating a greenhouse using a plastic bag, put on a container, a glass cap, a cut plastic bottle. In the ground they are planted obliquely.
  3. Next, you need to ensure a constant temperature of about 25 º C, daylight duration of at least 12 hours, the bottom heating.
  4. The substrate is constantly maintained in a slightly damp state; the greenhouse is ventilated daily, getting rid of condensate.
  5. When new leaves begin to appear on the rooted cuttings, they can be transplanted into open ground. On average, the process stretches for 4-6 weeks.
  6. Предварительно в течение 2–3 недель саженцы закаливают, постепенно продлевая время пребывания на открытом воздухе.
  7. Шиповник извлекают из ёмкости вместе с комом земли. Если осенняя посадка в регионе не рекомендуется, можно подождать и до весны.

Использование прикорневой поросли

Radical shoots most wild rose varieties form in abundance. This way to get new plants is provided by nature itself. At the same time, seedlings immediately separated from the parent plant are not recommended to be transferred to a permanent place. Their root system is weak, not too developed.

Radical shoots most varieties and wild rose hybrids form in abundance, so there is usually no shortage of planting material.

The “scions” with a height of 25–30 cm are separated from the mother plant with a shovel. In order for the transplantation procedure to succeed, about half of the leaves are cut off, the shoots are shortened, leaving 2-3 growth buds. Roots powder powder Kornevin.

An alternative option is to roll up the selected “seedling” highly in the spring and water it abundantly during the summer, pouring it under the roots of humus or rotted compost about once a month. Hilling stimulates the development of a system of adventitious roots. In the fall, it is carefully separated from the parent plant, and transferred to a permanent place next spring.

Seed germination

Rosehip seeds are extracted from the unripe fruits of brown color, while they are still quite soft shell. Otherwise, their germination is possible only under the condition of a minimum of semi-annual stratification, and seedlings will have to wait 2-3 years.

Rosehip seeds are extracted from unripe fruits - in this case they have a softer shell

Rosehip seeds are sown in winter in the grooves about 2 cm deep, leaving 5–6 cm between them. From above they are filled with humus and sawdust. In the spring, before the emergence of shoots, this section of the bed is tightened with plastic film. It is removed only when the daytime temperature is set at around 20ºС.

Seedlings in the phase of the appearance of the third leaf dive, leaving only the most powerful and developed plants. Further care for them is no different from what is required for adult wild rose bushes. Next spring, seedlings can be transplanted to a permanent place.

If spring planting is planned, during the winter the seeds are kept in containers filled with a moderately wet mixture of peat chips and sand in a dark place at a temperature of 2-3 ° C. Before they must be thoroughly cleaned from the pulp, so as not to provoke the development of mold or rot.

Closer to spring, the seed coat cracks. They are planted in a mixture of peat and sand, providing the same conditions as rooting cuttings. Plants are ready to be planted in the ground in 1.5-2 years.

Diseases, pests and control

Thorny wild rose shoots protect the shrub well against many pests that can attack garden plants. Also, the culture has good immunity against disease-causing fungi. However, the plant does not have absolute protection.

Most often, dog rose suffers from the following diseases:

  • leaf rust. On the inside of the sheet appear areas of "fleecy" yellow-orange bloom. Gradually they turn brown and thicken, the affected tissues die off. For prevention, swollen leaf buds are sprayed with a 2% solution of copper sulfate or Bordeaux mixture. During the season, soda ash treatment is carried out (15–20 g per 5 l of water). Having found alarming symptoms, fungicides are applied twice with an interval of 12–15 days (Topaz, Vectra, Strobe),
  • black spot. The disease spreads from the bottom up. Small, gradually expanding, rounded black and gray spots with a yellow border appear on the leaves and shoots. The affected parts of the plant dry and die. For prophylaxis about once a month, the soil is sprayed with Fitosporin-M in a wheel circle, and in the autumn after harvest, it is sprayed with a 2% solution of iron sulphate. A folk remedy - a solution of iodine (2 ml per 1 liter of water). To combat use of drugs Topaz, HOM, Abiga-Peak, spend 2-3 treatments with an interval of 7-10 days,
  • powdery mildew. Leaves and shoots are covered with a layer of whitish or grayish plaque, similar to the scattered flour. Gradually, it thickens and darkens, acquiring a brown tint. For prophylaxis, dogrose is sprayed every 10–15 days with an infusion of wood ash, garlic, mustard powder, a pale pink solution of potassium permanganate diluted with water of kefir. Struggling with the disease, using drugs Topsin-M, Vitaros, Bayleton (according to instructions),
  • peronosporiosis. On the leaves between the veins appear spots of lime color with a shiny, as if the oil surface. Fabrics in these places gradually dry and crumble, holes appear. For prophylaxis, the soil in the wheel circle and briar bushes once every 2-3 weeks are powdered with crushed chalk, colloidal sulfur, and wood ash. Planriz, Gamair, Alirin-B are used to fight the disease, performing treatments no more than once every 2 weeks,
  • chlorosis. The leaves are covered with yellow or almost white blurred spots, bounded by veins. The cause is most often iron deficiency. To eliminate it, 5 g of ascorbic acid and 2–3 g of ferrous sulfate are dissolved in 1 l of cold water. The shelf life of the solution - 12-15 days. It is also possible to use Ferrovit and Ferrilen preparations for spraying.

A folk remedy for the prevention of chlorosis is to bury several rusty nails under a bush.

Most of the typical culture pests are characteristic of roses, which are much more often exposed to their attacks. Therefore, in order to avoid infection, it is desirable to place these crops as far away from each other as possible on the garden plot.

Pest threatening wild rose:

  • spider mite Young leaves, the tops of the shoots, buds, are woven over with thin translucent threads resembling cobwebs, covered with small beige dots. The affected parts of the plant are deformed, dry. For the prevention of wild rose, once every 5-7 days, spray the extract with onion or garlic gruel, a decoction of cyclamen tubers. Finding a pest, apply acaricides (Omite, Apollo, Neoron, Vertimek) with an interval of 5-12 days. Drugs need to be changed so that the tick does not have time to develop immunity,
  • rose hips Adults lay eggs in the fruit ovary, hatched larvae eat away the fruit from the inside, leaving only the skin. For the prevention of wild rose just before flowering sprayed Aktellik. For the fight used Chlorofos and Kinmiks,
  • Rosan sawfly. The larvae feed on the leaf tissues, leaving only the veins, eating out longitudinal passages in the shoots. As a result, they turn black and wither. For the prevention of leaf, flower buds and fruit ovaries sprayed with an extract of wormwood or horsetail. Having found a pest, they use Inta-Vir, Actellic, Phosbecid, Aktar,
  • rosian leaflet Adult butterflies lay eggs in the leaves that roll up along the central vein. The larvae eat from the inside the buds and fruit ovaries, then move to the leaves, leaving only the veins. For prophylaxis, unblown buds are sprayed with Nitrafen, after flowering Karbofos is used. Fight caterpillars with Lepidocide, Dendrobacillin, Endobacterin,
  • Green Rose Aphid. Small lime-colored insects cling to the wrong side of leaves, shoot tips, flowers and buds, fruit ovaries. Every 5–8 days, you must spray the dogrose with any strongly smelling infusion. As raw materials, you can use garlic or onion arrows, peel of oranges, hot peppers, wormwood, tomato tops, tobacco chips. With the help of the same means they fight pest, increasing the number of treatments up to 3-4 times a day. In the absence of effect, any general insecticide is used (Konfidor, Mospilan, Iskra-Bio, Commodore).
