Flickr of Inspiration – Rose Hips

Rose Hips, originally uploaded by Bates’ Photography.

A long forgotten fruit. Roses are now primarily used for the floral industry. But rose hips were once commonly used from jams to candies. They have one of the highest levels of Vitamin C among fruit. If you’re interested in exploring rose hips try growing some Rosa rugosa plants as they are the main species of rose that have been utilized for their hips. They have gorgeous shocking magenta single blooms as well.
