Thanks for the suggestion and info, ForestDragon. Good to know.

Unfortunately, not native and quite invasive. I think it is still used in some places as an ornamental plant. It has escaped cultivation in many areas.

It is pretty when it is in bloom.

It's a rose, possibly wild rose (Rosa acicularis). But may be a hybrid type. It doesn't have to pink like Rosa acicularis so i would guess a hybrid.
