Climbing Wild Rose

(Rosa setigera)

The deciduous shrub has vine-like features allowing it to trail or climb for covering a trellis or fence. You can also grow it as thickets or a low hedge. The thorns on its woody stems are stout, short and slightly curved. The shiny, dark green compound leaves have 3-5 leaflets with long, pointed tips and finely serrated edges.
