The Blue Pitcher takes its name from the blue-red colored leaves. The plant has a great ornamental value and does well as a solitaire. It does not form foothills, like so many wild roses and does not spread uncontrollably. The rosehips are edible and versatile. The plant offers birds good hiding places and nesting possibilities in summer and food in winter.
The blue pike rose is about two meters high and just as wide. She grows upright. The basic shoots are long, overhanging in bows. It does not have as many spikes as many other wild rose species.
At the location and the soil, the rose makes no great demands. It should be sunny to absonnig. On the ground, it likes dry to moderately fresh, slightly acidic to alkaline and permeable. The plant is quite undemanding and yet frost hardy, city climate tolerant, wind and cut resistant and it can handle even high heat as well as some shade. Not much has to be cast, only after planting you should water vigorously until it grows. You can fertilize with organic fertilizer or compost.
The rose forms a shrub of about two meters in diameter. When planting you should leave enough space on all sides and maintain sufficient planting distance. The Blue Pike Rose is well suited for hedges, whether mixed natural hedges or impenetrable rose hedges. It makes no claims at all and easily tolerates any kind of pruning.
The Blue Pike Rose is increasingly being propagated through cuttings or sowing.
Beware, the blue dog rose is susceptible to rose rust, a fungal disease. Often the reason is potassium deficiency. This is where suitable fertilizers help. If nothing helps, you usually have to resort to chemical fungicides. But you should always try with natural or herbal methods that
