What are scotch roses?

Now known as Pimpinellifolia – the new “easy” name for what used to be Spinnisosisima , and yes, it is marginally easier to say and spell! The common name is much easier – Scotch Roses. These guys are a very hardy lot and love to grow on their own roots and go forth and multiply. They have very bristly stems, ferny foliage, and very interesting black hips. They flower very early in the season, for varying lengths of time. Most put on a great Autumn show of colour before they lose their leaves for winter, adding a 3rd dimension of interestingness!
