The “Jet Trail” is a compact, deciduous shrub that prefers full sun to partial shade. Full sun will encourage the plant to produce more blooms and fruit. The elongated, oval leaves are dark green and slightly shiny. It is an overall hardy plant that can tolerate very harsh winter temperatures which reach down to -20⁰ C.
The beautiful, clean-white flowers are approximately 4 cm across. The five-petaled flowers appear in bunches throughout the main plant. The fruit follows later in the summer season.
The blooms attract bees and butterflies in the spring and then later birds come for the fruit production. In addition to attracting a variety of pollinators, it has a long bloom season which is ideal for fresh cut flowers.
The plant has thorns and can be used as a low hedge or other border fence. It has suckers which will encourage spread, trim and remove accordingly.
It is best pruned lightly after the flowering season, however, this will affect that season’s fruit production. The fresh fruit is tart and is best used in recipes for jams and jellies.
