Baldhip Rose- yəst’adac - (Rosa gymnocarpa)
Growing in rich, shady, damp forests the Baldhip Rose is sometimes called Dwarf Rose, Wood Rose, or Little Wild Rose. This small shrub is the smallest of the roses and has dainty, fragrant pale-pink flowers— loved by hummingbirds and native bees—that bloom May through June. The small pear-shaped scarlet-orange rosehip grows with no sepals remaining attached and ripens in late July and persists through winter making it an important year-round food source for wildlife. Native Americans have used the rosehip as a bead for children, chewed leaves for bee stings, and in other medicinal applications.
