Easily transplanted shrub that can be grown in dryer as well as more moist areas. If the location was very wet we would recommend using Swamp Rose. It is a vigorous grower and will clump up quickly. Canes are profusely thorned and should be handled with leather gloves. We use welding gloves to handle them.
As an upland (UPL) plant there are many choices for associated species. Oaks, Hickories and Maples will do well with them just to name a few.
I have never seen this species growing in the wild but have seen it in cultivation. It is very similar to Swamp Rose and blooms in the same manner but a little earlier in the year (late May). Some plants tend to have paler pink flowers while others are a rosier pink.
