Coming to us from south and central Europe to the Caucasus, this 6-8 ft fountain of small gray-green to plum-purple leaves holds small but significant deep pink flowers that fade to white around a yellow center. Bloom time is May to June, attracting butterflies, followed closely by the vivid orange-red hips attractive to birds. Reddish-violet canes have few thorns and are good looking throughout winter. Disease-resistant; lightly fragrant.

Minimum temperature: -40° F
