Alpine Rose

Rosa pendulina

Description:

The Alpine or Montane rose is a deciduous shrub, climbing, and often growing in a shade of other trees. It is practically thornless and possess a strong agreable fragrance. Leaves are pinnate leaves, with 7 to 11 leaflets. Flowers are pinkish, becoming paler toward the centre, and are followed by showy red oval orange-red hips, pointing downwards.

Habitat:

Found on a mixed forest, in hills on slopes of Jura mountain range.

Notes:

This rose can be easily confused with the Gallic rose, Rosa gallica (here is one of my previous spottings of Gallic rose: https://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/12...) bear uniformly coloured pink flowers, slightly larger; and sports pinnate leaves composed of 3 to 7 leaflets (7 to 11 for Alpine rose).

I wrongly IDed this spotting as Gallic rose back in time. As I was preparing another spotting for the same species, found this summer, I realized my mistake and just changed it.
