Discover Rosa pisocarpa, a remarkable species of rose, known commonly as Cluster Rose or Swamp Rose. This distinct beauty is native to western North America, stretching from British Columbia to northern California. Thriving in moist habitats, it frequently forms a dense thicket, reaching a height of up to 8 ft tall. Its eye-catching stems boast a dark red or blackish hue, featuring straight, paired prickles at nodes.
The leaves of Rosa pisocarpa consist of several toothed oval leaflets, with the terminal leaflet growing up to 1.5 inches long. It exhibits a cyme inflorescence featuring up to 10 flowers with pink petals each up to 0.75 inches in length. But it's in the fall and early winter that this plant comes into its own as the rose hips - pear or egg-shaped and borne in clusters - turn a stunning red or reddish-purple. This contrasts beautifully with the yellow or dark red foliage.
But beauty is just one facet of the Rosa pisocarpa - it's also a practical and useful plant. Its fruit is used to make delicious jams, jellies and a fruity-flavored tea. Rich in Vitamin E, the seeds can also be ground into a powder and used as a supplement. Moreover, Rosa pisocarpa plays an essential role in wetland restorations and native plant landscaping, providing shelter and food for birds and other small wildlife. This standout rose is as versatile as it's delightful - a wonderful addition to any setting.
