This rose is mainly found in coastal areas on sandy soils. It had creamy-white flowers, sometimes with pink splashes. It flowers in spring and early summer and spreads easily from suckers. It is very spiny and the hip that develops (pictured) is black rather than red. The leaves are hairless with 7 - 9 toothed leaflets. Picture taken near Stagsden, Bedfordshire 28th August 2006.
