Rosa canina, or Dog Rose, is a vigorous, fast-growing, deciduous shrub with arching, thorny stems, toothed, green leaves, and lightly fragrant, 5-petal, white to pink flowers, blooming solitary or in clusters in June and July. Flowers are followed by the abundance of glossy, red, berry-like fruits that persist on braches for several months. Dog Rose thrives in fertile, moist, hummus-rich soil, but is tolerant of other types of soil, even poor ones, as long as they are well-drained. It prefers full sun, but can grow in partial shade. It is resistant to frost. A tough and undemanding plant, very easy to grow. Require some pruning to maintain its shape. Rosa canina is a great wildlife plant, perfect for informal, cottage, and wildlife gardens. It is attractive to bees, butterflies, and birds, and great shelter for birds and small mammals. It makes excellent informal hedges or screens because of its density and fast growth. Great for beds and borders.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
