Japanese Rose (Rosa multiflora) ROE-sah multiflora

Family Rosaceae

A quick Google search found several hundred species of roses, and tens of thousands of cultivars. There’s a reason roses are so beloved among men that we’ve found and bred this astonishing variety: they are beautiful, they smell divine, they are reliable, and they can grow in an array of conditions. Just make sure your plant gets lots of sun and lives in well-drained soil, and she’ll give you stunning blooms for years on end.


That kind of performance is worth a little finger prick every now and again, right?
