Rosa bracteata hybrid BH3
Well, it's been opening a bloom or two here and there for a little while now. Definitely not as much as a typical repeat blooming rose, but still better than none this time of year. I saw the white petals down over the hill but when I went down they'd just dropped off of the flower. There's another bud behind that one though and a few more still to open on other places on the bush.
Here's how full the foliage still is. The picture tops out over my head, which is where several of the shoots are going.
Here are some hips setting down near the grass. From years past. I'd expect them to have only 1-4 small seeds.
