Illinois Rose - Rosa setigera
Prefers at least a half-day of sun. Pink flowers with yellow centers bloom in July. Fall color is red-orange with red rose hips. A number of people have used this as a climbing rose, for unlike most climbing roses, it is very hardy. Renewal pruning can be done once every 3 years in the spring. Since the plant blooms on new wood, you will get blooms the same year.
