OK, Kathy Purdy at Cold Climate Gardening (a most worthy blog, if you are interested in gardening in upstate New York, or a similar clime) this one's for you.
I had called it, in a previous post where I was talking from memory, a rugosa rose. You told me chances were that it wasn't. So I am curious to know, given that it is common on the trailsides of the Vestal Rail Trail, exactly what this is. (If anyone else knows exactly what kind of rose this is, please let me know.)
Meantime, the wild rose we have on our small city lot (which is pinkish in color) is getting ready to bloom. I hope it is ready by Saturday, Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. (I also hope we aren't in the middle of a flood on Saturday, but that's another story.)
Tomorrow - tame, old fashioned, wonderful scented roses.
Do you like wild roses?
