This species of Cotton-grass is easily recognised by its soft grass-like leaves and the downy stalks of its spikes. β is only a slender variety. I suspect that slender specimens both of Eriophorum angustifolium, and Eriophorum pubescens pass under the name of Eriphorum gracile. For the correctness of the quotations of the synonyms from Wahlenberg's Fl. Lapp, and Hoppe Fasc., I rest upon the authority of specimens from the late Dr. Swartz and Mr. Thomas of Bex.

ICOSANDRIA POLYGYNIA.Edit

203. ROSA.Edit

1. R. rubella. Red-fruited Dwarf Rose.Edit

Fruit oval, somewhat bristly. Flower stalks, bristly. Stem spreading, clothed with straight slender spines. Leaflets elliptical, smooth, singly serrated. Segments of the calyx entire.
Eng. Bot. 2521 and 2601, Fruit f.3; With. iii. 613; Sm. Com. 78 ; Woods, Linn. Trans. xii. 177; Lindley, Mon. 40; Sm. Eng. Fl. ii. 374; Winch, Geog. Pl. 2nd ed., No. 1, App.; Hook. Br. Fl. 225.
Flowers white tinged with pink. Fruit, when ripe, pear-shaped, scarlet, and pendant. Calyx permanent.
On the sands of the sea coast near South Shields, D., mixed with the dwarf variety of the Burnet Rose, rare July 17, 1797.
This shrub appears a link between Rosa spinosissima and Rosa alpina; the latter of which it greatly resembles in habit. It is not Rosa pimpinellifolia of the Swiss Botanists, as Mr. Woods conjectures; for, by a specimen procured from Schleicher, that plant appears to be Rosa spinosissima. Nor is it Rosa spinosissima, var. 3, of Withering, as I am assured by that gentleman.

2. R. spinosissima. Burnet Rose.Edit

Fruit globose, smooth as well as the flower stalks. Stem clothed with numerous straight slender spines. Leaflets singly serrated, smooth and round.
Eng. Bot. t. 187; With. iii. 612; Winch, Geog. Pl., 2nd ed., No. 2, App.; Berwick Flora, 111; Hook. Br. Fl. 226; Fl. Scot. 154; Gr. Fl. Eds. 111; Woods, Linn. Trans, xii. 178; Fl.

Flowers yellowish white. Fruit first reddish brown, as coloured in English Botany, and then turning black. Calyx permanent.
γ pusilla, Woods, Linn. Trans, xii. 179; Sm. Eng. Fl. ii. 376.
Flower stalks short. Fruit large, depressed.
The Burnet Rose is a shrub of a very diminutive growth on the sea beach (var. γ), but rises to a tall bush in woods and hedges distant from the coast. It is not very common, but occasionally to be found even in our sub-alpine vallies; and in the woods bordering the Lakes of Cumberland and Westmoreland. It may be met with about Newcastle, Corbridge, the Crag Lake, and on the coast at Holy Island, N. At Hebburn Quay, on the links near South Shields, at Norton; also in Weardale and Teesdale, D.

3. R. gracilis. Tall Bristly Rose.Edit

Flower stalks bristly, generally bracteated. Branches, fruit and calyx bristly. Leaflets doubly serrated, hairy on both sides.
Woods, Linn. Trans, xii. 186; Sm. Eng. Fl. ii. 379; Winch, Geog. Pl., 2nd ed., No. 4, App.; R. villosa, Eng. Bot. t. 583.

Flowers pink; generally one, but sometimes two or three together. Petals yellowish at the base. Fruit globular scarlet. Calyx permanent, entire.
α At Baydales, near Darlington, D. β in Heaton Dene, below Benton Bridge, and near Goldspink Hall, N. Near Middleton-one-Row, D.— Mr. J. Backhouse. In α gracilis the large prickles are somewhat falcate; this is all the difference I can observe in the plants growing between Keswick and Lorton, from which Woods drew up his specific character, and β Sabini the variety found in Heaton Dene. We have not the elegant white variety with red glands, abundant in Ennerdale. With γ involuta, I am acquainted by specimens and plants procured on the shores of Arran by the late Mr. G. Don. It is merely a dwarf variety from growing on the sands of the sea coast, as is the case with Rosa spinossissima and its petals are occasionally involute, which in dry situations happens to most other roses.

4. R. villosa. Soft-leaved round-fruited Rose.Edit

Fruit globose, half as long as the segments of the calyx, bristly as well as the flower-stalks. Prickles of the stem straight. Leaflets elliptic, ovate, downy on both sides. Calyx permanent. R. villosa, Woods, Linn. Trans, xii. 189; Winch, Geog. Pl. 2nd ed. No. 5 App.; Hook. Br. Fl. 230; With. iii. 612; Var. 2, Sm. Eng. Fl. ii. 311; R. villosa, β Fl. Brit. ii. 538; R. mollis, Eng.

Very common about Newcastle, in hedges and woods. When this shrub grows on a sterile soil, or in a bleak exposed situation, it assumes the stunted habit and full red flower, as delineated in Eng. Bot. t. ii. 459. The fruit varies from smoothness to a considerable degree of roughness. Rosa villosa, of Dr. Swartz and other foreign botanists, is the Apple Rose of our gardens, which I believe is not indigenous in Britain. Its fruit is very large, and leaves pointed.

5. R. tomentosa. Downy-leaved Dog Rose.Edit

Fruit ovate, bristly as well as the flower stalks. Prickles of the stem slightly curved. Leaflets doubly serrated, ovate, downy on both sides. Divisions of the calyx permanent.
Eng. Bot. t. 990; Fl. Brit. ii. 539; With. iii. 615; Woods, Linn. Tr. xii. 197; Lindley, Mon. 27; Sm. Eng. Fl. ii. 383; Berwick Flora, 111; Winch, Geog. PI. 2nd ed., No. 6 App.; Hook. Br. Fl. 231.
Flowers bright red, paler at the base.
In woods and hedges about Newcastle, by no means rare.

6. R. scabriuscula. Rough-leaved Dog Rose.Edit

Fruit, roundish, ovate, bristly as well as the flower stalks. Prickles awl-shaped, as well as the flower stalks. Leaflets doubly serrated, elliptical, with minute hairs. Divisions of the calyx permanent.
Eng. Bot. t. 1896; Woods, Linn. Trans, xii. 193; Sm. Compend. 78; With. iii. 615; Berwick Flora, 111; Winch, Geog. Pl., 2nd ed., No. 7, App.; R. tomentosa α? Hook. Br. Fl. 231; R. tomentosa β, Sm. Eng. Fl. ii. 383.
Fruit red. Bristles on the fruit and flower-stalks ending in minute glands; but there is a variety with smooth fruit. Leaflets are more pointed than represented in Eng. Bot. and covered with a hoary, velvety down.
In hedges near Benwell (1797), Paradise, Scotswood, Fenham, Jesmond, Ponteland, and Heaton Dene, N. Near Ravensworth, the High and Low Team, and Tanfield, D. Near Wallington.—W.C. Trevelyan, Esq. On the banks of Tweed, above the Union Bridge, and in hedges near Berwick, N.— Dr. G. Johnston.
The buds are peculiarly handsome when sufficiently expanded to shew the bright red tints with which the outer edge of the snow-white petals is marked. Probably Sir J.E. SMITH is right in considering this rose a variety of Rosa tomentosa; but I shall let it stand as a species, till the contrary be proved by sowing its seeds.

7. R. Eglanteria. Sweet Briar.Edit

Fruit ob-ovate, bristly as well as the flower-stalks. Leaves doubly serrated. Prickles of the stem hooked, clothed beneath with rusty-coloured glands. Segments of the calyx deciduous.

Backhouse. On the edge of the military road by the twelfth mile stone, also on the north side of the Coquet at Warkworth, almost opposite the church, N.—Wallis, 143. Naturalized about Scremmerston and Broom House.—Dr. G. Johnston.

8. R. Borreri. Downy-stalked Dog Rose.Edit

Fruit ovate, smooth. Flower-stalks villous, somewhat bristly, clustered. Prickles of the stem hooked. Leaflets ovate, doubly serrated, slightly hairy beneath. Foot-stalks very downy.
Woods, Linn. Trans, xii. 210; Winch, Geog. Pl., 2nd ed., No. 9, App.; R. dumetorum, Eng. Bot. t. 2579; Sm. Compend. 79; With. iii. 618; Sm. Eng. Fl. ii. 388; R. inodora, Hook. Br. Fl. 233; R. rubiginosa inodora, Hook. Fl. Lond. t. 117.
ς Lindley Mon. 88.
Fruit scarlet, ovate. Petals pale pink, yellowish at the base.
In a hedge on Friar's Goose Quay, probably brought with ballast from the south of England.
This rose is accurately delineated in the English Botany, but the calyx remains long on the fruit. Like Rosa canina, it frequently throws out long leading shoots, which soon overtop the bunches of flowers. In all likelihood Lindley was not in error in making it a variety of the Eglantine.

9. R. dumetorum. Thicket Rose.Edit

Fruit elliptical, smooth, as tall as the bracteas. Flower-stalks aggregate, slightly hairy. Calyx pinnate. Prickles numerous, scattered, hooked. Leaves simply serrated, hairy on both sides.

In every hedge near Newcastle, both in Northumberland and Durham. This is a much slenderer, though less trailing Briar than Rosa canina; its flowers pale pink, growing in pairs or single, and its fruit large. It also further differs in habit, by not having young shoots sprouting beyond the blossoms, so as to give them the appearance of being axillary; and from Rosa sentriosa of Acharius (Stockholm Transactions) in the fruit being ovate, not globular. The leaves of the shrub are glaucous — peculiarly so in the spring of the year; and with reluctance I relinquish the name given to it in the first edition of the Geog. of Plants, for the less appropriate one of my late friend, Dr. Swartz. This rose stands exactly in the same predicament as R. scabriuscula, and I leave it as a species till ascertained to be a variety of R. canina, to which, it must be owned, it bears a strong resemblance.

12. R. arvensis. White-trailing Dog Rose.Edit

Style united. Fruit globose, smooth as well as the flower-stalks. Leaves unequally serrated. Stem and leaf-stalks prickly. Flowers generally clustered. Prickles hooked.

Flowers white. Germen oblong. Fruit globose, deep red, terminated by the simple base of the styles. Calyx deciduous. Stems glaucous, sometimes the colour of mahogany.
In woods and hedges at Friar's Goose, near Gateshead, at Cocken, and between Norton and Sadberge, also near Marsden, D. At St. Authon's, and in Elswick Dene near Newcastle, N. Between Broom House and Haggerstone, N.—Thompson's Berwick Plants.
The foreign Botanists do not seem to be well acquainted with this species, some of them considering it the same as Rosa sempervirens, from which it is easily distinguished by the more oval form and colour of its leaves, and the calyx being quite smooth. From Dr. Swartz I have received specimens of a rose named Rosa arvensis, but which resembled a small variety of Rosa canina, and is Rosa agrestis of Schleicher's Catalogue of Swiss Plants. The Ayrshire Rose, which may frequently be seen trained against walls, is scarcely a variety. When the plant grows upon a poor soil, and is weak, its flowers are not clustered, and it then becomes the var. β of Hudson's Flora Anglica and Ray's Synopsis.
