HISTORY: In ancient times Rosehips were used to treat rabid dog bites. Native Americans used them for muscle cramps. Rosehips are a classic of Victorian floral arrangements. During World War II while it was difficult to import citrus fruits, the English gathered wild-grown rosehips and made vitamin C syrup for children.
FARM FRESH: Rosehips are grown in an inland mountain canyon where the micro-climate provides Sun Valley a prime location to specialize in Rosehips and other specialty branches with large, healthy “berries” and ultimately, better lasting quality.
COLOR: Rosehips are harvested when lime green early-season, glowing green with a pink blush mid-season, and range from orange to red to dark burgundy late-season.
LASTING: Rosehips will stay vibrant and plump for several weeks in an arrangement. Dried Rosehips also make a beautiful display.
LENGTH: Branches of tall, sturdy stems. Premium: 32”, Super: 24” to 28”
DISPLAY: Punctuate arrangements with Rosehips, a brilliant seasonal offering with liberally berried branches. Add great textural contrast, volume and an artful dimension. Utilize Rosehips for a botanical, outdoorsy bouquet. Green Rosehips are popular in European style arrangements.
CARE & HANDLING: Handle carefully as Rosehip stems are prickly. Upon arrival cut stems and place into a clean container with fresh, tepid water. No fresh flower food solution is necessary.
“Hips” are formed at the base of flowers and are actually the fruit of the rose. (Our Rosehips are only sold for decorative purposes.)
