|Wichurana is a semi-evergreen species rose of hardy, climbing habit, mound-forming as a groundcover. Plant produces cupped to flat, single, clover-scented white flowers with clusters of prominent golden yellow stamens. Produces numerous small, shiny, dark green leaves. Blooms are followed by orange-red, spherical hips. Also known as wichuriana species or Memorial rose.
In general, roses are a large group of flowering shrubs, most with showy flowers that are single-petalled to fully double-petalled. Leaves are typically medium to dark green, glossy, and ovate, with finely toothed edges. Vary in size from 1/2 inch to 6 inches, five petals to more than 30, and in nearly every color. Often the flowers are very fragrant.
Most varieties grow on long canes that sometimes climb. Unfortunately, this favorite plant is quite susceptible to a variety of diseases and pests, many of which can be controlled with good cultural practices.
