Coming up roses

This is the local rose bush. It's passed the flowering stage. The red things are called "rose hips" and they can be used to make tea or jam. The bush range in size from 3-6 feet high.

I picked a couple of the rose hips and placed them on the dash of my car. After a week they had dried out and (when broken open) produce seed. I'm hoping grow some plants to add to the hedge around my property.
