Rosa multifloraFOUND by dumbblonds

We think we have identified multiflora rose because the leaves are oval shaped, rigid, and have miniscule spikes. They are about 2 ½ inches long and 1 ¼ inches wide. They have tiny hairs on the undersides of the leaves, and few short and stubby red thorns along the stem. Clusters of red berries are hanging off the stem, and each berry is 1 cm wide and long. The wind and the leaves are rustling around me, as I’m standing on the paved sidewalk, facing the woods, and it seems as if the multiflora rose is a protective barrier to the woods. I can tell the difference between the multiflora rose and the different species on the site by the ridges on the leaves.
We found a bush that had small red berries, or rosehips, like the ones pictured on the species identification card. It says that these berries appear in fall, so our information matches up.
