Moyes Rose Overview

Rosa moyesii is a large, deciduous shrub species capable of growing 4m high and wide. It has arching stems bearing dark green foliage and a spreading, branched habit. Deep scarlet blooms appear in the summer, they are arranged singly or in clusters and lead onto pendant, red, flask-shaped hips. These are not true fruits, instead, they are termed accessory fruits or false fruits as they include other flower parts and thus haven't developed solely from the ovary.
