Seed Swaps

Wild Roses     

These are “wild roses”. They are probably rugosas, but I have no idea what variety. One of them was propagated from a slip I took off a beach on Lake Superior about 4 years ago, so is probably a Rosa acicularis.
The rest? Who knows?

This planting is in the Backyard garden .

Hi there this could well be R ‘Dupontii’ or Snowbush Rose. I,m simply going by the blooms and the general appearance. Hope you don’t mind but I have also browsed your other photos and you have one with a caption asking ‘What is this flower’ I think it said well I believe that its an Aquilegia. There are literally dozens of different colours and sizes and will self seed but normally return to purple when this occurs…knowlesie
