   I’ve been trying to document the extensive amount of rose flowers in my parent’s backyard this year – and have photographed all that have bloomed so far. This flower is a Rosa glauca species of rose (common name: Redleaf Rose or Red leaved Rose) in the backyard rose garden. This species is an ornamental here in North America but is native to central and southern Europe. Some of our own wild rose species aren’t quite as colourful, though the flowers look quite similar.
