Very nice Torgny! My front lawn is edged by a 100 foot row of these beauties.

Oh, you are lucky. Over here they are not displayed in gardens, only in the wild nature. Here is another picture with the same colour, but there are variation, as I will show

Ours have mostly flowered already, but the Rosa Rugosa produces a berry called a rose hip. My better half makes rose hip jelly from them. Full of good vitamins.

Yes, rose hips (nypon in my language) have a special, very distinct taste. We do "nyponsoppa", "rose hip soup" to eat with a couple of sandwiches or warmed up in a thermos on cross country skiing tours. Very tasty
