Scientific Name: Rosa rubiginosa

Sweet Briar


Originally an ornamental or hedge plant now spread by seed via fruit–eating birds and other animals. Plants readily eaten by grazing animals in younger stages. No fodder value and isolated clumps will join together and compete with productive species. Control by goats, herbicide or deep cultivation.
