  Recommended Planting Range



Prairie rose grows in dry prairies, savannas, and other open places on sandy, gravelly or rocky soil. It is densely prickly and spreads underground on light, deep soil. It is the smallest native rose, and usually dies back to the ground each fall, but resprouts and flowers the following summer. Good for dry slopes.
