Rosa palustris

Swamp rose

Rosa palustris is a native shrub that is common in wetland sites across the southeast. It needs to grow in wet soils, and prefers full sun to part shade. It produces pink, radial flowers in the summer that are characteristic of the rose family and attract many pollinators. The rose hips in the fall are eaten by birds of all sizes. Rosa palustris is a great plant for restoration projects, or as a specimen plant in a yard or rain garden.
