Field Rose (Rosa arvensis)
The Field Rose, Rosa arvensis, has white flowers with golden anthers and a heady scent. It is a scrambler with arching stems, less tall than the Dog Rose. Field Roses are great plants for wildlife too, offering a protective habitat and food supply for birds and small mammals, nectar for insects and bees, and a foodplant for several moths and butterflies.
Field Roses do better on heavier soils, and work very well in mixed native hedges or scrambling through other shrubs.
Provenance certificates are available on request for Field Rose plants, which are from the Southwest of England.
