This rose was found in 1949 by Jackson M. Batchelor of Willard, North Carolina, growing in the garden of a 1750’s plantation home on the Cape Fear River, near Wilmington, N.C. The area was originally settled by Scottish and English immigrants and Mr. Batchelor speculates that this rose came with them, which explains its name. (The rose shows no relationship to the ‘Scotch Rose’, R. spinosissima.) He sent plants to the National Arboretum in 1956, where it was rated as an outstanding groundcover shrub for slopes. We find that this once blooming rose makes a superb and graceful low hedge.
