|Sub-group||Rose Family - Rosaceae|
Roses are one of the most common families of wild flowers and also one of the most diverse. The five-petal rosette is a characteristic but in some members of the family this is not clearly visible. The range of species is quite immense from hedgerow shrubs to small sprawling little flowers. Not all members of the family are immediately obvious as roses.
