Rosa canina x tomentosa (R. x scabriuscula)
A tall deciduous shrub with climbing or arching stems. It grows along woodland borders, in scrub and hedgerows, on road and track sides and on railway embankments. It prefers well-drained calcareous soils, but is also found on basic clay substrates. It is usually fertile. Lowland.
The distribution of R. x scabriuscula is probably stable. It is likely to be under-recorded, however, as it is often mistaken for its parents or for R. canina x R. sherardii.
Wider distribution uncertain.
