Rosa Rugosa Hips. My Picture of the Day




I add Rosa rugosa hips (seed capsules) to my tea for its flavor.
They are packed with vitamin C (8 times more than oranges (USDA data).

  2. Do you use your own rose hips or do you buy them to add to your tea?

  3. Rugosas are some of the only roses that are hardy in Alaska where I used to garden and seeing your beautiful pictures reminds me of home. Birds were fond of our rose hips. They also make wonderful jam.

    1. Thanks, Jason! I left several of them on the bush. I guess the birds will eat them.

  6. What an enigmatic photo. The red of the hip is pretty and inviting but the tentacles are scary and foreboding. Your pictures are always the BEST!

  8. Exquisite photos, Tatyana! I'll have to remember to collect my Rosehips next summer/fall. I didn't realize you could simply add them to a beverage...I figured you had to chop them up or something.

    1. Thank you PlantPosting! Some people get seeds out, and some don't.

  9. Loved your pics, Tatyana! Especially the first is a lovely composition, almost like a dancer caught in a particularly complex move. My rugosas never get to winter because the birds eat them almost as fast as they ripen. Jack

    1. Jack, thanks! It's very interesting about the birds. There are many of them in my garden that feed on the dry perennials, but the rugosa hips stay long untouched. I got curious and need to check if any hips are left.

  10. Your photos are excellent all the time! They convey real cold, is it negative now in your area? We are not familiar with hips, but are the small hips of the common roses also good for tea?

    1. Andrea, thank you! It's an interesting question! I've never tried the tea with common rose hips!

  11. Now that I have a couple rugosas I will have to try the rosehip tea. Your photos are stunning.

  12. I want to thank you for these wonderful pictures. Especially thank you for taking all of the ones of my shop. I don't have any of my own that are nearly as good. Thank you so much. I do miss my little shop and the nice people like you who came there. Vickie
