Both roses produce decorative hips in later on, though I'm slightly disappointed with those of Scarlet Fire.

Not a great photo but I am pleased with the non-fruit plantings in my 'pear garden'. Shrub roses Scarlet Fire and Rosa Moyesii 'Geranium', growing into half-standards of Pear Morettini and quince Sobu, clashing with Papaver orientalis Turkenlouis'. Contrast added by purple hues of Lysimachia Ciliata 'Firecracker', various purple-leaved sedums, Iris 'Black Swan' and Allium christophii.
