Wild: Dog Rose

Genus: Rosa.

Species: rosa acicularis.

This is a common pink wild rose but we have so much and the flowering display in Alaska so wonderful it is well worth mention. It can be hard trimmed to make a very nice floriferous hedge. It is very spiny and a bit venomous, so handle with care.
