Virginia Rose is also a deciduous rose, meaning it can be found in thickets, meadows, and roadsides.

The Virginia Rose is a plant that is a member of the rose family, and also happens to be the most commonly found wild rose in eastern North America. It is also known as the Prairie Rose or the Common Wild Rose, though it's actual scientific name is "rosa virginiana." The rose itself can grow up in larger shrubs, has between five and seven pink glossy petals grow out from it. Regarding landscaping, Virginia rose is excellent for general eye appeal but also because the plant is fruit-bearing and can be sustained through the winter when most other plants will likely have died off. Another appealing aspect of the rose is that it is resistant to certain diseases that can affect other roses.

This outstanding ornamental shrub is an excellent addition to any landscape due to its colorful foliage. Plant a hedge or along a bank. It thrives in either moist or sandy soil but prefers a sunny position.

The Virginia Rose bears fragrant pink flowers that are two to three inches in diameter and occur in clusters of five to eight. This plant is a perennial shrub, native to the U.S. Its most active growth period is in the spring and summer. The plant is an upright shrub with dark green foliage that turns purplish-red fall color. 

This plant is natural to grow; it requires a moderate amount of water and full sunlight. This lovely flower grows along the edges of salt marshes, roadsides and in pastures. It has an average growth rate and life span relative to most other plant species and low drought tolerance; does well under winter conditions. Virginia rose is a hardy species of dry and sometimes saline habitats. Its stipules distinguish it from the similar Carolina rose -- they are widest toward the top.

This shrub, which produces attractive pink flowers, is a good choice for dry, sandy places in the garden.
