Tree that was hit by lightning last spring in a most spectacular fashion. It rattled the windows and sulphur rent the air.
Hands off-wet paint, well maybe not, but the spines of this bush have kept all notion of eating it down to the roots absent from the minds of the local fauna.
Great Bloom but I suspect this is a pest of the highest order.
A really spectacular thorny-super thorny plant that was growing in the pile of dirt parked by the second gate down the hill. The upclose of the bloom and stout stickers are above.
Lots of beauty for a bloom of a sticker bush. I'm sure that it has some scientific name but when you grab one in the flower bed with your unsuspecting delicate hand, all of the names for it become 4-lettered.
