#239 — Sweet Wild Rose

Cluster of Wild Roses 2009.

These beauties also grow in my Aunt Vera’s yard. The bush grows wild and free and has gotten so large over the years that the garden path no longer passes by it, but instead detours around it.

    They look so soft and shiny.

    Nicole — I had to take this pic because usually wild roses have pink centers. I had never seen one with a yellow center. My Aunt said they have a special name, but I don’t remember it.

    Is it low on the ground.
    Or climbing?
    Check google for rosa arvensis.

    Nicole — The bush was easily as tall as I — 5’4″ — and perhaps 8 feet around. It was quite wild and grand and just commandeered a middle portion of my Aunt’s vegetable garden. She said it planted itself there several years ago and she chose to let it be.

    They do get bushy.
    Just not like the normal roses, more like you describe.
