The rose hip, usually from R. canina is used as a minor source of Vitamin C. The fruits of many species have significant levels of vitamins and have been used as a food supplement. Many roses have been used in herbal and folk medicines. Rosa chinensis has long been used in Chinese traditional medicine.

Stately Rose PD's Beautiful Poem contest

Oh, how beautiful you are
waving on your stem
a perfect picture 
to behold

Your attar floods my senses
so sweet and fragrant
deep musky scents
that beguile me

Your hips full and plump
rose water or tea I make
or rose scones to eat
a chocolate I savour

Standing in stately splendour
full blooms reaching skyward
I pluck one so that its
perfume I can extract

How can I not admire thee
as you climb up a wall
or smother a fence
with wonderful blooms

You creep alone the ground
or soar high into the sky
stand upright in beauty
you have it all to show

So many colours
all different hues
Rose, I worship thee
as my soul you delight
