This post will help identify Rose Hips growing in the wild. From everything from their tiny little rose buds, to their thorny branches, and finally their blooming flowers.
Rose Hips do have several different varieties and colors of the flowers and fruit can vary. The following photos are of the main variety of Rose Hip that grows in the wild on our Northern Idaho property.
First here is photo of a pink blooming Rose Hip and a tiny rose bud.
I hope you have found these Rose Hips photos useful in your search of them in the wild. They grow freely all around our property and there are many uses for this natural fruit. Rose Hips have many medicinal uses and are a good wild source for vitamin C, make an excellent tea and herbal throat reliever just to name a few things.
Just remember to always remove the skins from the seeds and other materials inside. The seeds and little fibers inside are an irritating, hairy-looking substance you do not want. You must remove all of the insides and rinse the red skins thoroughly to remove this unwanted material from the valuable portion of Rose Hip berry.
