Negative Muddy1 On Nov 4, 2013, Muddy1 from Vienna, VA (Zone 7a) wrote:

This is a non-native invasive plant that escapes from cultivation because birds carry the seeds, and it has the potential to form dense thickets that will prevent native plants from growing. In addition, its thorns can make it much less enjoyable for people to walk through the woods. There are attractive native alternatives for those who want thorny plants!

Appears to be great as a back-of-the-border or privacy-blind plant. Flowers have faint buttery scent. Arching branch habit. Appears to self-sew freely, probably by bird droppings. Found at Linwood Peony Gardens, Pavilion, New York.
