Comments

You've done a good job of identifying multiflora rose. Did you notice the "fringes" at the base of each compound leaf?

Thanks for checking our work and thanks for giving us a place to publish our findings.

Na!

Excellent evidence, sodium! Scale, thorns, berries - you hit all the key features.

Go Na!
