Sweet briar

£8.50

Sweet briar is a perennial deciduous shrub which will climb and scramble through a native hedge, tree or trellis. It has prickly stems and the foliage has a lovely sweet fragrance of apple.  There are simple pink flowers adorning the rambler in mid summer which are darker than a Dog rose. Bright red berries follow in the Autumn, to add extra interest. It is great when planted as part of a native hedge as it will provide much interest through the year. It can also be planted at the back of a border or against a wall in a sunny spot.
