Musk Rose

(Rosa moschata)

This is a deciduous or semi-evergreen shrub or climber that grows at a fast pace. You can plant it against a post, tree or wall to create a visual interest with its dark green, almost thornless stems and ovate or elliptical shiny green leaves with a purple tinge. The showy, clustered flowers fill your garden with their pleasant, musky aroma.
