  1. Ferdy, I believe and I may be wrong, that these flowers are Lace-cape Hydrangeas. I was doing a little research on Rosa canina and for some reason the photos (I believe there a six and macro) are of Hydrangea macrophylla normalis. Just my thoughts. Gary Posted one year ago
    1. Thanks so much, Gary, for being so sharp. Indeed it looks like I got this one wrong. I suck at identifying flowers but was even worse in 2012. Fixed! Posted one year ago
      1. Hey, you are more than welcome. It just happened that I have been struggling with identifying a wild/introduced rose for the last three days and was searching for options and confirmation... anywhere, JD included! Gary Posted one year ago
        1. I can recommend the app Pl@ntnet, it uses image recognition. I even just take photos from my smartphone of the screen and it still kind of works. At least it often gives me a solid direction. Posted one year ago
          1. I shall have to look into that app. Thanks, Gary Posted one year ago
