The Multiflora Rose is a deciduous, vine-like shrub with spreading, thorny branches and multitudes of white flowers that are produced in the spring. It is native to Japan and Korea. It is a rambling rose that is noted for its arching and spreading habit. It is grown as an ornamental plant for its flowers. It is used as a rootstock for cultivated roses and is planted for fence rows and erosion control. Plants feature coarse, prickly, arching canes that typically can grow to 15’ tall. Small (.75 to 1.5” across), aromatic, white to light pink roses in pyramidal to globular clusters (to 30 flowers per cluster) explode into bloom in one profuse June display. Flowers give way to small red hips (to 3/8” long) in early fall which persist into winter. Pinnately compound, medium green leaves typically have 7-9, toothed, oval leaflets each. Common name is in reference to the prodigious flowering. It grows best in deep, fertile, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Best flowering and disease resistance occur in full sun. Plants have better tolerance for some shade than most other types of roses. Consistent moisture (avoid overhead watering), good air circulation and summer mulch help promote best growth. Hardy in zones 5-9.

Growing Instructions for the Multiflora Rose

The seeds have a period of dormancy. They can be planted outdoors in the fall or winter for spring germination or they can be cold stratified to simulate winter conditions and to break their dormancy at any time of the year. 1. Scarify the seeds by nicking or sanding the seed coat. The seeds can be sanded with sandpaper, a nail file or an emery board. 2. Soak the seed in water for several hours. 3. Place the seeds in a plastic bag and seal it. Store the bag in a refrigerator for two months. 4. The seeds like moist, well-drained soil. Prepare a mixture of half potting soil and half sand, perlite or vermiculite. Put the soil in a pot. Water the mixture so that it is moist but not wet. 5. Sow the seeds on the soil and cover them with a thin layer of soil. 6. Water the container and leave it to drain. 7. Put the pot in a warm, sunny area. 8. Water the pot regularly so that the soil is moist but not wet. 9. The seedlings can be transplanted when they are a few inches tall.
