Rosa sweginzowii (species)

The Garden (Sept 2, 1922) p. 439

Rosa Sweginzowii.—This is an ugly name for a spreading Rose that is very handsome when in fruit. The bright crimson haws are inverted urn-shape and glow with colour, and the neat, fern-like leaves are somewhat like those of Rosa sericea. The plant was raised from seed collected by the late Mr. R. Farrar. Wilson is of the opinion that it is a geographical form of R. setipoda.
