There has been a pretty consistent thread on here regarding thornless roses. Now it is time for the opposite! Show us your thorniest roses! The ones that really get you!
I have had roses get tangled up in my hair (that was fun), attack my sweaters, sweatshirts, etc.
I will start with the roses that were supposed to be thornless or nearly thornless???? Not the world's greatest pictures but I was getting tangled up trying to take them!
Brother Cadfael--the older he gets, the thornier he gets
Flamingo Dancer--supposed to be thornless or nearly thornless---not so much but a lovely rose nonetheless
Candice--no idea how her thorns were going to be--they can be vicious!
Still need to get pictures of Munstead but have not had time to do that this weekend.
The thorniest is not a rose at all. My Yuzu tree. Those suckers are a good three inches long and as sharp as can be. Again not the best pictures but you get the general idea.
I also have a visitor. Just a baby. Loves to hide in my roses. Mama is always close by when not out hunting for food/bugs, etc. No thorns on that one!
