Description: Our red rose petals come from the Rosa chinensis, a climbing, deciduous rose which comes from a genus of the rose that is native to Southwest China in Guizhou, Hubei, and Sichuan Provinces which reaches a height of 1-8 metres. The leaves are alternate, pinnate with 3-5 lanceolate leaflets on each leaf, each leaflet measuring 2.5-6cm in length and dark green in colour and glossy above and paler green with tiny barbed teeth on the veining of the underside, the edge of the leaves are serrated. The 5-petaled flowers are deep pink to red in colour and fragrant, 6-8cm in diameter with 5 yellowy sepals. The hips are round and green, ripening to orangey-yellow, with usually only 2 or 3 large seeds per hip.
Interesting Fact: Did you know that the China Rose is the ancestor of many of the cultivated garden roses grown today, such as the floribunda’s and hybrid tea roses? The rose was named Rosa chinensis by the Dutch botanist Nikolaus Joseph von Jacquin in 1768 when he witnessed and illustrated the rose for the first time.
