Wild rose, smells lovely! Growing up a tree at least 30 feet. It's got pale pink flowers that are in clusters, each flower being about the size of a US nickle. Definite rose leaves and growth. I have never seen a wild rose that has flower clusters like that, any clue what variety it is?
And I will be propagating starts off it, it's lovely and smells beautiful :D
Zone 6, southern Missouri, blooming heavily in mid-May, all the way up some tall trees.
Colors are weird in this pic, the flowers are a definite pale pink. Not a real good shot at all. Not sure what I have been doing wrong with my phone camera lately...
Thanks for help!
It was introduced to the U.S. from Japan in 1866 as rootstock for grafted ornamental rose cultivars. The spread of multiflora rose increased in the 1930s, when it was introduced by the U.S. Soil Conservation Service for use in erosion control and as living fences, or natural hedges, to confine livestock.
I love them, some do not...
looking further, it seems there are images of pink ones.
There are also many wild pink roses in the Ozarks that climb trees with much larger blooms but also in clusters. At our old place there were three different ones.
so, by the end of my post I am much less certain....
