  1. I believe that’s Alberta’s provincial flower. Very pretty and has such a delicate scent.

    • It is certainly worthy of being a state or province flower. It really decorates the countryside.

  2. Nice poetic shots. Wild roses are the best. I love their perfume on a summer day.

    • My mother grew some beautiful roses, but I still like the wild ones best too.

  4. Do they have the same fragrance as a cultivated rose?

  5. That’s a beautiful wild rose. It’s a little more pink than our bristly rose (Rosa acicularis) I think.

    • There are 9 species of wild roses in the northwest, including one that is also called “Bristly”. But it is “Rosa nutkana” and grows only in the western states. Probably a very close relative to yours.

  7. I was in the country yesterday, and our Rose bracteata was blooming everywhere. One of its common names is Hedge Rose, and it lines fields nearly everywhere. It’s easy to spot because of its white flowers, but apart from color I think it’s almost identical to this one.

    • That’s a species that we don’t have here. There must be a tremendous number of rose species in North America!

    • Thanks. It’s interesting to photograph a wildflower that is not so very small!
