Rosa Carolina (Carolina Rose)
Anybody have this? I think I have some growing wild in one of my backyard beds. I noticed it there a couple of seasons ago and thought the foliage looked like a rose, plus the stems were loaded with thorns, so I passed over it with the weedeater and the next season I was rewarded with a nice set of blooms. Since then, it's multiplied through suckers
The only problem is I'm not positive this one is "Rosa Carolina" as every description I've seen of that rose on the web specficially says it produces bright red rose-hips. Mine has rose hips that are just a plain greenish-white in color. Plus, the bloom color is a pale pink which is different from what I've seen in those same internet searches. So I'm thinking it must be some other type of native rose.
I've attached a link for Carolina Rose below.
