Multiflora Rose in Bloom

by Stephanie Suesan Smith on June 27, 2010

I wrote about the Multiflora Rose (Rosa multiflora) and giving my mother a part of it for Easter.  I have been watching the rest of the plant in the pasture and when it bloomed a couple of weeks ago, I took pictures.  This type of rose blooms all at once, then not again for a year, so catching it in the act was tricky.   Here are pictures of the rose bush and close-ups of the flowers.  Notice it is a single layer of petals.  Not like some of the modern roses with complex blooms.
