Introducing a classic beauty, the Rosa canina 'Schmid's Ideal', brought to life in 1912 by Robert Schmid. This dog rose cultivar presents an exceptional offering to enchant any garden with its flowering prowess. Its lively growth and delicate, pink blossoms make it a perfect ornament in every setting. Effortlessly hardy and frost-resistant, the 'Schmid's Ideal' is an excellent grafting base with moderately prickly shoots. Not just an ornamental delight, it's also a medicinal marvel. Known as one of the most renowned medicinal plants, the dog rose offers fruits rich in vitamin C and fruit acids. This multi-purpose rose is used to create teas, jams, marmalades, and syrups. The 'Schmid's Ideal' Dog Rose also makes a suitable candidate for greenhouse crops, supporting all groups of roses. Despite its occasional propensity for wild shoots, it makes for an effective rootstock for hybrid tea roses. In fact, it's seen as a prime rootstock for standard roses. Unearth the charm and utility of the Rosa canina 'Schmid's Ideal' today.
