Rose for Hips - Shrubs
All true species (or wild) roses will produce good crops of hips as well as a number of other roses with single flowers. Many roses produce beautifully coloured hips, which are highly decorative and can be used in flower arrangements. Hips also help to attract wild birds to the garden.
