Fruits are curved, hanging, green pods that turn brown, coil up and split open as they ripen to reveal small bright red seeds.

Plant grow in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in part shade to full shade.

Planting and care

  • Deadhead religiously and keep beds clean. Every leaf has a growth bud, so removing old flower blossoms encourages the plant to make more flowers instead of using the energy to make seeds.
  • Clean away from around the base of the rose bushes any trimmed debris that can harbor disease and insects.
  • Prefers moist, humusy soils in part shade. Avoid poorly-drained, wet soils, particularly in winter. Slow and difficult to grow from seed.

    Thorli Gunj care

    The vining varieties require a support structure as some can get 15 feet tall. All plants prefer sun to light shade sites with well-draining and moderately fertile soil. Install the plant in the ground at the same level it was growing in the nursery pot. Most plants are grafted onto the common rootstock because of its superior hardiness.
