  •  Yup, P. contorta. You're ahead of us then. (7+ / 0-)

    Also with the roses. We have no buds yet at all, though even the foliage has a faint rose scent. Nootkas are common along the roads, and elsewhere, big patches. Like you say down there, open places. Deer won't eat it, so it proliferates. In a few weeks the air will be filled with that rosy aroma. I pick some of the buds and string them, hanging a loop from the rear view mirror. Quite heavenly. My fingers smell like roses even after several baths.

    The Baldhips prefer shadier places here. I see them up on the densely forested Hill. Haven't been up there for a while. Time to...spring, and new growth.
