Similar to Rosa multiflora Thunb. ex Murr.
There are three native roses that resemble multiflora rose: prairie rose (Rosa setigera), swamp rose (Rosa palustris), and Carolina rose (Rosa carolina). They are easily distinguished by their pink flower color and lack of bristly hairs at the bases of the leaf petioles. Flowers on these native species are about twice as large (2-2.5 inches) as multiflora rose (1 inch). Carolina rose is a short shrub (to 4 feet) with 1 to 3 flowers in a cluster. Prairie rose has long arching or climbing stems to 12 feet, and clusters of 3 to 7 pink flowers that may fade to white. Swamp rose is 6 to 7 feet tall. None are likely to form extensive infestations like multiflora rose with the exception of swamp rose in a wet habitat.
All three native rose species can be used in suitable landscapes, attracting bees and birds.
