080 PRAIRIE WILD ROSE

Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
Nebraska Sandhills As colorful as it is fragrant, overlapping blush pink petals spread wide to reveal pollen-covered yellow stamens of the prairie wild rose. In early summer, the prairies throughout the Great Plains bloom with the prairie wild rose. Often found on moderately disturbed sites and hillsides, it is the most common wild rose in the Plains. During the bloom, the flower provides food and necessity for a host of dutiful prairie insects. In fall, its bright red fleshy fruit, sometimes called rose hips, is an important food source for a host of prairie wildlife species in fall and in the lean months of winter.
