At this time many plants are just beginning to produce new shoots and leaves, including the dog rose. This plant is very common in hedgerows throughout England and Wales. It is the ancestor of the modern garden rose. It was a valuable medicinal plant and from the hips, Rosehip syrup which is rich in vitamin C is produced. It flowers June - July with the hips forming August - September. Photographed early February 2006 at Old Warden, Bedfordshire.
