Description:

I know this is a Rose but I'm not sure which type. It is large with an arching stem which makes me think it could be Dog Rose. Am I barking up the wrong tree?

There is no way you can determine roses without looking at at least 4-5 characters of which the hips are crucial but leaflets, prickles etc all matter. Best looked at in August/September. Photos are rarely sufficient.

Thank you cicuta, after doing some research I've just found out there are over 20 varieties of Dog Rose, let alone the other species of Rose to consider!
