Rosa canina (Rosaceae), called dog rose or brier rose, is native to and widely distributed throughout Europe. Bright red persistent fruit or pseudofruit (hips) appear in September and October. Rose hip preparations are used for colds, diabetes, diarrhea, edema, fever, gastritis, arthritis, and numerous other conditions. 

The American Botanical Council (ABC) is passionate about helping people live healthier lives through the responsible use of herbs and medicinal plants. As an independent, nonprofit education organization, ABC is dedicated to providing accurate and reliable information for consumers, healthcare practitioners, researchers, educators, industry and the media.
