do you know?

I like this bush with the red berries on it but have to admit I don’t know what it is…do you?  When I look closely it looks as though there was a flower at the end.   Is this a seed pod?

  4. They look like rose hips, but I am not 100% sure. We dry them and then make tea out of them. Supposed to have medicinal properties.

    • thanks Vahagn, that is what I thought and what someone else said,but wasn’t sure as they are much more vibrant than what I’ve seen before?

      • It’s rare to see them because most people like for their roses to bloom as long as possible. The best way to make that happen is to deadhead them, i.e., cut off the rose blooms once they are finished blooming but before they go to seed, which is what the rose hips are, the seed pods.

      • Thanks for the explanation Russel…I had wild rose bushes many years ago and as you say always deadheaded them in order to keep them producing flowers…these look much different than what I remember. As you can guess I’m not an accomplished gardener, just love flowers.
