Also known as burr rose, it produces large light pink flowers, occurring singly at the top of tall flower stalks.The bark looks attractive in its pale brown or beige color with peeling texture, while the leathery dark green foliage contrasts well with the flowers. The spherical bristly hips turn brown on maturing, resembling chestnut burrs, earning the plant its name.
Frequently enough to keep the soil moist during the first year of growth; established plants do not need much watering
As chestnut rose can grow up to 10 feet and more if left unchecked, pruning may be needed, especially if growing in a smaller garden
Doesn’t need fertilization, but does well with proper mulching, especially the first 2-3 years of growth. Established plants can benefit from proper mulching as well.
