The Greeks believed that the roots of this wild rose could cure the effects of the bite of a mad dog. This led the Romans to name the flower Rosa canina - literally "Dog Rose". It is then perhaps ironic that Henry VIII should adopt as his symbol this rose which he called the Tudor Rose. Syrup of the Dog Rose hip has been given to children for many years as a source of vitamin C.
