Native blooms that grow upwards of 6 – 12 feet tall, the Climbing Prairie Rose (Rosa setigera) is a lovely native Rose with a vigorous and versatile nature! Single rows of five petals are perfect landing pads for butterflies as they smother the bush in summer, fading to nearly white as each blossom ages – creating a mix of hues on the shrub throughout the May to June bloom season.
Fragrant clusters of single pink flowers bloom from early to mid-summer on long arching canes that can be grown as either rambling mounding shrubs or trained into climbing forms.
Fast-growing, the canes soon become festooned by small, showy rosehips that show off all fall through winter. However, these shrubs are mostly dioecious and only the female shrubs will develop the hips. Snip the blossom for bouquets and use the hips as dried décor, bird food, and winter interest!
Hardy throughout USDA growing zones 4 to 8, these native Climbing Roses are filled with dark green foliage that becomes attractive fall shades of red to purple in autumn, they are excellent substitutes for the invasive, non-native Multiflora Roses. Native Roses have better natural disease resistance than hybrids and are very easy-care.
Planting and Application:Climbing Prairie Roses are quite versatile, as either a rambling or cascading Shrub Rose that drapes itself over embankments or retaining walls, crawling down a hillside or eroding slope, or creating informal hedges, shelterbelts, and defensive barrier plantings that feed Songbirds, butterflies, and shelter wildlife!
When grown as an actual Climbing Rose, you’ll enjoy the canes dripping over trellis or arbors around your garden! Big flouncy blooms, varying shades of pink and white, plus the fluttering of pollinators will delight you anywhere you choose to add height to the sun landscape as privacy and screening!
Handling a wide range of environments, these wild Roses are ideal for sunny gardens, open and airy prairies, and native plantings where they can create thickets or trim into neat County Garden hedges. Naturalized into masses and groups, the birds fill with their song as they forage for insects, nest, and feed their chicks.

#ProPlantTips for Care:Grown on its own root, the Prairie Wild Rose is hardy and disease-resistant in full sun and in a location with good air circulation. This resilient native thrives in a wide range of soil types as long as they’re well-drained. Provide moderate regular water, but once established, Wild Roses can be quite drought-tolerant or even moist soils along ponds and water features.
In the fall, get your Rose bushes ready for winter by mounding clean leaves or mulch over the crown, but do not prune Roses in the early spring while un-wintering them before new growth emerges. Every few years, you can renewal prune these shrubs by removing the oldest, thickest stems to increase vigor. Prune these as either Shrub Roses or Climbing Roses in the early spring.
