This rose grows "wild" around this part of Kentucky. It is found near old home sites and on disturbed areas near roads and bridges.It is very beautiful and I cultivate it in my yard. In this sense my experience is "positive." However, I also have "negative" feelings towards "Carnea" since R. multiflora apparently serves as an important reservoir of rose rosette virus disease (Emaravirus sp.) that can spread to cultivated roses.
