The Scottish roses are a group of shrubby roses, very rustic pigeons, which originated from the spinosissima Rose. They are characterized by erect spines and imparipinnate leaves, formed by 7-11 gray-green leaflets. The flowers bloom between May and July, they are very fragrant and can appear solitary or gathered in corymbs. The colors range from light pink to bright brown with shades of white, yellow and lilac. The height and diameter of the shrub vary between 60 and 150 cm, these roses grow very well in light soils. As for cultivation, Scottish roses tolerate poor soils well and do not require special treatments against cryptogamic diseases. Also the pruning in this case is not very invasive, limiting itself only to discipline the branches out of place, or to eliminate the dead or old stems. Possibly, if placed in mixed borders, the secondary branches can be shortened to keep them more compact.
