|The green plant interspersed with the multiflora|
in this photo is Greenbrier (smilax rotundifolia)
which is a native plant! Note the nest in the branches.
- Leaves: Leaves are pinnately compound, divided into 7-9 leaflets, and have fine serration around the edge.
- Fruit: Red rose hips mature in September-October
- Thorns: Sharp hooked thorns with smaller thorns that continue along stem into leaf. This is the main ID tip between multi-flora and your native pasture rose. The native rose has straight thorns and has nothing where the stem connects into the leaves. This is the best ID tip for the winter months.
