Also known as Early Wild Rose or Smooth Rose, this is a nearly thornless native rose – any "thorns" that occur are bristly prickles at the base of older stems, while the new and upper stems remain smooth. Broad rounded, to arching-mounded, Rosa blanda spreads by rhizomatous roots to form patches, making it a good choice for naturalizing in larger areas. Showy pink flowers provide a pleasant fragrance and are fine petaled, 2"–3” across with yellow centers. Berry-like rosehip fruits, popular with birds and a variety of wildlife, turn bright red in late summer. Both Rosa blanda and Rosa carolina are host plants for the larval stage of the Apple Sphinx Moth (Sphinx gordius).
