About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Slovenian

The wild rose genus is very large and includes around 200 species, which grow in temperate and subtropical areas of the northern hemisphere to tropical Asia. Only one species also grows in tropical Africa. Wild roses are predominantly deciduous and rarely evergreen shrubs, they can be climbers and are more or less thorny. Only a bit over a tenth of them grow in Slovenia, but despite that, identifying and determining them is no easier. In fact, it might be even more difficult, because Slovenia is actually a windy country, where the influences of the Alps, the Adriatic Sea (the Mediterranean), the Pannonic Plain and the Dinaric Mountains, extending along the Balkan Peninsula, are joined. As this book shows, there is a great interspecies diversity in various genera that are widespread in Slovenia, and it is even more pronounced with wild roses. This book describes 26 species and varieties.
