Multiflora Rose

Rosa multiflora


Native to East Asia, it is a scrambling shrub climbing over other plants to a height of 3–5 m, with stout stems with recurved thorns. The leaves are 5–10 cm long, compound, with 5-9 leaflets. The flowers are produced in large corymbs, each flower small, 1.5–4 cm diameter, white or pink, borne in early summer.


Considered invasive and a pest plant in some areas of North America, it grows well in waste soil.


This specimen might be suffering from "Rose Rosette Disease" a viral infection that is devastating to wild roses.
