My local McDonald's had a bit out there landscaper. He planted rugosa roses. Rugosas are known for their rose hips, those ripe seed pods reminiscent of the fruit of apples, medlars, and pomegranates; only small scale.
You can literally see the connection in rugosa rose hips and these other genera. These particular rose hips are so large and succulent, I long to reach out my window when grabbing a cup of joe and grab the hips as well. The hips in this McDonald's drive lane have driven me to plant my own rugosas.
