A strong shrub rose species from NW China with bright pink flowers with lighter centres in summer followed by bright red flagon shaped hips. Sun, average soil. 3m.
Mostly grown for the showy hips that are similar to Rosa moyesii but ripen earlier in the season so provide a better show in the garden.
Introduced by Ernest Wilson in 1903.
