Mystery pink rambler in Georgia
I saw it growing wild in quite a few places along the roadsides here in very rural N. Georgia. Highway 166/92 just south of I-20 in Douglas county.
The plant looks like some kind of multiflora... It grows wide, in full sun, and very sprawlly. It lays along the ground, no big tall thickets, the canes are yellow and pencil-sized or thinner.
It will root on its own. Highway department mowers cut back one and rooted where canes were crushed into the ground. It also will grow up into trees in part shade. I've seen 12' specimens.
The flowers come in sprays from little fat, round buds. No re-bloom. No scent that I can detect. No diseases even without care.
I took cuttings from several sites (about 12) and almost all have rooted.
I have images I can forward. I've tired to add them to this message and to my clippings page, but i can't figure it out...
