Apparently native, and distinguished from R. setigera Michx. by its pale, almost white, velvety under surfaces of the leaves.

The Natural History of Plants: Their Forms, Growth and Distribution, Volume 1, Part 2, p. 673
From the German of Anton Kerner von Marilaun
by F. W. Oliver, M.A., D.Sc.

Some climbing roses (e.g. Rosa setigera) have this remarkable peculiarity, that their new shoots at first seek the darkest places, turning their apices away from the bright sunshine, growing into the shaded nooks behind the trellis-work, and not inclining again towards the light until they are fully grown. In this way the advantage is obtained that the shoots originally turning from the light enter the gaps of the undergrowth and of the trellis-work, while later on, when lateral branches arise from them, they are excellently supported.
