Rose Hips and 'Carefree Beauty'

This rose bush is fantastic. 'Carefree Beauty' is no delicate plant. I don't spray roses with chemicals, so they need to be hardy. This blooms all through the season, except for a heat wave over 100F, but as soon as the weather gets reasonable it continues on blooming its heart out. Now it is covered in large rose hips. I'm going to harvest and try to dry them to make some rose hip tea. Here is a great website for more info on this rose. Plus they have a database and photos of almost any rose you can think of.
