Species from China valued for its incredible thorns. Normally thorns are not such a good deal but the new thorns on this rose are broadly winged and bright red and absolutely glow liked stained glass with the sun shining through them. Same effect as going to church. Single white flowers.

Every rose has its thorns, but how many roses would you grow JUST for its prickliest feature? Here's your one and only: the "Wingthorn Rose" - when backlit, the ostentatious thorns glow blood red the whole length of the stem. Easily one of the most interesting barrier plants I've ever met, it's a super-tough shrub & provides all season interest with its red Fall hips. Lightly fragrant single white flowers to 2" across are a pleasant plus in late Spring. To have the bloodiest show of thorns, prune the plants severely in Winter to force more new growth, as the color of the thorns will fade as the growing season wears on, and the ferny foliage of the plant fills in. Unmanaged, it will grow 6' x 6' with a large "V" shape at maturity. Deciduous & as far as roses go, this one's as disease free as can be! From China.

This rose is a show stopper with the large red thorns. We cut our plants down to one foot each March. The new growth has very large red thorns. With this approach there will be no flowers but who cares with those stunning thorns.
