Virginia Roses and Lighthouses

When we did the Tour de Lighthouse last year the first one I saw was the Cape Neddick Lighthouse in York Maine.  Besides seeing the rocky shores (and by rocky I mean BIG rocks) I noticed these huge rose bushes with the biggest rose hips I had ever seen.  They are a native eastern rose called the Virginia rose; hardy to the cold and pretty tough.

I would love to have a row of these growing in my yard but I’ve read that besides being hardy they will take over if given a chance.

  1. Nice takes on these, Teri. They’ll be lighting up Nubble light for the holidays about now. I like it better with warm weather and roses. Cheers!
