There are prickly photos and smooth-caned photos in the file. If R. setipoda hybridised freely, then I think the original R. setipoda might as well be the mysterious Bigfoot of roses.

It could be a similar situation to R.Californica where the species is highly variable with it's thorns....would probably need to peoples first hand experiences in seeing it in the world to confirm/deny that though.

Given the fairly thornless version in Australia vs the various thorny forms in other places it's likely more a case of undocumented hybridization as I assume most places likely imported from one central source ~100 years ago or something.

I was told that the Hemsleyana is a species rose from Central China. Is that true?
