Rose week #3
This is another flower from the Old Cemetery in Southampton.
The flower buds were deep red, the flowers faded to this colour as they aged so the plant looked multi-coloured. The flowers were 'normal' sized, and in clusters.
I think it is a type of Moss Rose - with masses of small prickles on the stems, making them look as if they are covered in moss, rather than long sharp thorns. You can just about see some above the flower.
