Abstract

Plantings of Rosa multiflora have been made to provide economical, stock-proof, living fences. The earliest such planting in Iowa was made in 1930. Because the demand exceeded the supply of plants, the State Conservation Commission in 1950 initiated a multiflora rose seed distribution program to help satisfy the demand. A checkup on success of the program showed that only 4.5% of the seed were successfully grown and transplanted. Nevertheless, 244.8 miles of rose hedges resulted from the program. Cost to the Commission was $8 per mile of established hedge.
