Also known as Climbing Prairie Rose.

Prairie Rose features clusters of pink flowers that gradually fade to white.  Its dark green foliage turns deep red and purple in autumn. It can be grown as a climber or allowed to ramble and mound. It allowed to mound it can be grown as a low, informal hedge. Branches allowed to touch the ground will root if left on the ground for long enough.

Prairie Rose tolerates does best in average, medium to moist, well-draining soil in full sun to part shade. Best flowering and disease resistance occur in full sun. As with any roses, good air circulation is vital and not watering the foliage is best for plant health.

Prairie Rose produces male and female flowers on separate plants. Both sexes are required to produce rosehips. Fruit is relished by birds.
