Rosa x scabriuscula (Rosa canina x tomentosa)

 Always surprises me how you can keep walking past a plant without noticing it, must of walked by this hybrid rose at least 100 times over the last few years. One large bush growing in a roadside hedge at Bannow Bay. There are a few scattered sites for this hybrid in Co. Wexford. The interesting thing is that Rosa tomentosa has only been recorded 3 times in the county. Roger Maskew confirmed this hybrid for me, glad I got the ID correct.
