Rosa canina or the wild rose, called also briar rose, dog rose, hedge rose, burnet rose and bramble rose. The latter maybe due to the fact that the wild rose is a close relative of the bramble or blackberry.

The wild rose blooming is one of the most common sights of our countryside during May and June and yet it still has the power to take our breath away with petal colour ranging from white through pink to red and an accompanying scent which is truly exquisite.

The fruit of the wild rose is the bright red hip. Rose hips have twenty more times vitamin C than oranges and during World War II when fresh fruit was scarce the government asked that rose hips be picked to make rose hip syrup. Rose hip syrup is still a good way of making sure children get their vitamin C. Research is now being done into rosehips for the treatment of osteo and rheumatiod arthritis.

The dried leaves of the wild rose is used to make a tea and are also used to make a poultice to aid the healing of wounds.

Wild rose petals are used in making rose water and skin lotions and astringents.

Perhaps the most famous use of the wild rose is as the symbol of the Tudor monarchs and is has become the flower symbol of England.

Recent research in Denmark and Germany has suggested that rosehips may offer an effective treatment for both osteo- and rheumatoid arthritis.
