About 25 years ago, my grandmother gave my mother this plant. I think she called it a wild rose, but it looks nothing like any rose I've ever seen. I think she got it from a cutting taken from a wild plant in Colorado. I know it's tough to make out exactly what I'm trying to show here. I took these pictures a couple of weeks ago, and it's really too muddy outside to get near it due to all of the rain we've been having. (I've also been impaled trying to move the damn thing!) I'm curious about the plant that's actually in the terra cotta pot. It has long, snakey stems covered in spines, with small leaves and tiny red flowers. This is not to be confused with the masses of shrimp plants around it that are threatening to take over the yard.
