Upright shrub, bearing fragrant, 2-3" diameter, pastel-pink flowers in summer. The fruits, while somewhat bristly, are high in vitamin C and reasonably palatable, and may be eaten out of hand, used to make preserves, or steeped to make tea. These fruits are also eaten by birds and other wildlife. Exceptionally adaptable to various soil conditions, Virginia rose grows naturally on sites ranging from dry to saturated (or even in shallow water).
