(Wild Rose, Small White Rambling - 02) Each year, in the early part of June, these small white wild rambling roses begin to bloom, bringing a contrast to the green background. These roses are a climbing variety, and they utilize other trees and shrubs for their support. A few of these roses are in single bushes, but most are seen cascading down from the branches of other vegetation. The compound leaves are 5–10 cm long, with 5-9 leaflets with finely toothed edges. This year (2001) they were very prolific, giving the whole of Sleepy Hollow Lake a sweet perfume.
