Native Swamp Rose

swamproseNative swamp rose can be grown in most moist soils and will tolerate a good deal of drought.  It will sucker and form a thicket which needs to be located away from walkways yet close enough that the fragrant pink flowers can be smelled.  Birds like the fruit and the protection of the thorny stems while children and the inner child of adults love the fragrance.  This will bring back memories of your childhood so beware of an emotional response.
