Rosa webbiana Western Himalaya.
One of the prettiest of rose species, making dense bushes filled with arching, interlacing twigs up to 6 feet high and wide.The wiry stems are of rich, plum-brown...Leaflets tiny, 7-9...narrow bottle shaped heps are of brilliant sealing-wax scarlet and highly polished, with persistent sepals. Rosa webbiana of gardens is, in all probability, correctly ascribed to R. sertata, a closely allied species with fewer prickles and longer leaves.
