The Burnet Rose is small flower found on a bushy shrub, usually growing in sandy soil or limestone pavements. They flower from May to August with white, cream or light pink heart-shaped petals. After flowering the plant displays black or purple rosehips which are known as a great source of vitamin C. The rose is a popular symbolic theme in Irish folk songs and lore. The flower is often symbolic of a young woman’s beauty, even Ireland herself is associated with the dog-rose or Roisin Dubh.
