Rosa glutinosa x palustris
Close-up of the mature foliage of Rosa glutinosa X palustris. Compared to its seed parent the leaflets are more elongated and pointy. The edges aren't quite as deeply toothed also. The foliage scent is nearly as strong as the seed parent and only a little bit altered in character.
With all of the sawfly larvae and tobacco budworm caterpillars I could hardly find any leaves of the parents to show, but here are some ragged specimens of glutinosa on the left and palustris on the right.
