Rosa   Roses

 

JWHH was a specialist in roses and the huge number of varieties and forms that he and his colleagues recorded from these islands in the 1930s reflect an evolving taxonomy at that time.  The taxonomy of roses native to the British Isles has since been much changed and simplified (Graham & Primavesi, 1993).  In the following species accounts, a limited attempt has been made to match the 1930s records with the modern treatment.

 

JWHH noted that R. spinosissima is missing from Raasay despite its occurrence in abundance directly across the water on both Scalpay and Skye.  This remains true today. He found hybrids involving this species on Raasay as indeed has the author – see below.

A single plant at Brochel has failed to flower since it was discovered. It is clearly a hybrid involving R. spinosissima and the other parent is either R. sherardii or R. mollis. Without fruits it is impossible to be certain, but based on a specimen, ALP thinks it more likely to reside here.

The following bramble records from the 1930s are uncertain in terms of today’s understanding of Rubus taxonomy and plants currently known on the islands:

 

[Rubus cardiophyllus Lefvre & P.J. Mll. as R. rhamnifolius Weihe & Nees.

Raasay (Harrison 1937a). No authenticated records from northwest Scotland  (Newton & Randall). Perhaps R. polyanthemus?]

 

Rubus fissus Lindl. as R. rogersii Linton. Scattered on Raasay (Harrison 1937a).

 

? Rubus hebridensis Edees as R. corylifolius Sm.  Inverarish Woods (Harrison 1937a).

R. corylifolius Sm. has been split into several species within section Corylifolii but on distributional grounds R. hebridensis looks quite possible.

 

Rubus nessensis Hall as R. suberectus Anders. In the wood along the Arish Burn (Harrison 1937a).

 

[Rubus ulmifolius Schott as R. rusticanus Merc. Raasay (Harrison 1937a).

No authenticated records from northwest Scotland  (Newton & Randall).]

Rona:               Not known.

 

Harrison (1937a) recorded the hybrid R. idaeus x R. suberectus Anders. (= R. nessensis Hall) in the woods along the Arish Burn and noted that it was a shy fruiter. R. nessensis is classified within the Rubus genus as one of a group of species with characteristics intermediate between R. idaeus and R. fruticosus agg. Verified specimens of R. idaeus x R. fruticosus are extremely rare.
