R. Moyesii, Hensl. and Wils. This rose needs protection in most parts of Canada and so is rarely seen in its full beauty. Where it is perfectly hardy it forms a tall shrub to eight feet and is covered with blood-red flowers, followed by very long orange-red bottle-necked fruits. The foliage is very fine in texture, each leaf being formed of many small leaflets.
