It seeds itself all over the place, I wish my hybrid-teas and floribundas grew as rapidly as that!

Margit, do you know of any place that carries this?

Michael, as best as I know this rose was discarded when the rose material growing in the Morden Arboretum was removed in 2011. I am unaware of it being sold anywhere.

Thank you for your comments.
I am hoping others will copy the idea and put their own botanical type pictures up on HMF. I tried several background colours and the black poster board ($1.00) gave the truest colours. My camera is a $100.00 "point n' shoot" with a setting for "foliage". It usually takes about 10 trial and error shots to get one with the ideal exposure.

Great picture, it looks a bit like a Rosa rubiginosa hybrid. Is the foliage scened?

No the foliage does not have any scent.
