Sweet Briar roses are very easy to grow in sandy soil. Just dig a hole, plant and give them some fertilizer plus water and away they will go. They prefer sun but will take some shade. You don't even have to prune them if you don't want to. They will grow to about 9 feet tall.

This rose is growing in dry pastures or forest edges here in Slovakia, means love full sun but partial shade tolerate for a short term. Soil usually loamy and poor. Foliage with nice apple scent so far in hot sunny days!

I grew this rose in full shade (1-2 hrs of sun per day) in NJ for six or seven years. It never bloomed, but it did fill the air with delicious green apple scent on foggy, still, spring mornings.

This rose is so feral in parts of Australia and New Zealand that even with full deep shade, it still blooms enough to set hips with me. I really should get rid of it before I get too old to do so, but that apple smell persuades me to keep it for just a few more years. In the meantime, I de-hip after I have had my fill of the sight of the hips and before the birds can get to them.

Could you just cut it back hard each winter that way you would get loads of smelly foliage and no flowers, maybe grow a group 3 Clematis over it?

In Dutch this rose is called: Egelantier.
Can this synonym be added too?
