Desert Rose, or Rosa Silvestre grows from the red clay of El Rosario (in Baja) up onto Otay Mesa. A really thorny dwarf rose with single pink flowers. The thorns are close and intense, but will not bite unless you stick your hand in it, and twist it. If you're stupid enough to try to pick a flower bare handed, you must be the one that bathes stray cats for fun. The habitat of this rose is kinda coastal sage scrub with a desert feel, little rain, but tropical humidity, some fog and cactus like species. An excellent candidate for a coastal or San Joaquin cactus garden.
