We obtained this prostrate shrub with elongated, prickly canes from the National Arboretum in Washington, D.C. The original plants were collected in sand along the seacoast at Murotozaki, Kochi Prefecture, Japan. It is considered rare, with a restricted natural distribution. The small, white flowers appear in clusters periodically through the growing season and are followed by oval red hips. Vigorous, but less rampant than the species, the National Arboretum considers this variety promising for use as a low, mat-forming ground cover. We find that R. wichuraiana poteriifolia makes an attractive, weeping plant in a large container as well.
