Gallic Rose

Rosa gallica


Also known as French rose or rose of Provins, this is a deciduous shrub, often growing in large groups, forming impenetrable patches. It sports thorny stems bearing pinnate leaves and 1 to 4 pink five-petalled flowers. Flowers are followed by showy red oval orange-red hips.


This rose draws its origins in Central and southern Europe and western Asia and Caucasus. Here, found and observed forming large patches of shrubbery on edges of beautiful Bagasse forest (deciduous, predominantly oak, forest) on France-Switzerland border, in a valley of lake Geneva, just in between Jura and Alps mountains ranges.
