The Multiflora Rose is an invasive species brought to north America in the 1700s to use as an ornamental, a living fence and erosion control. According to the Missouri Dept. of Conservation multiflora rose readily invades prairies, savannas, open woodland and forest edges. It is a thorny, bushy shrub that can form impenetrable thickets or "living fences" and smother out other vegetation. It is a serious pest species throughout the eastern United States.
