The king of serpents, so full of poison that it all shines on the outside! What am I saying, the poison; even the stink comes out and kills you! Poisons you… And it has black spots on his back, and a head like a cock, and half goes upright over the earth, and half on the ground like the other serpents.
Rose leaflets Exterior view of rose buds Longitudinal section through a developing rose hip The leaves are borne alternately on the stem. In most species they are 5 to 15 centimetres 2.
Most roses are deciduous but a few particularly from Southeast Asia are evergreen or nearly so. The flowers of most species have five petals, with the exception of Rosa sericeawhich usually has only four.
Each petal is divided into two distinct lobes and is usually white or pink, though in a few species yellow or red. Beneath the petals are five sepals or in the case of some Rosa sericea, four. These may be long enough to be visible when viewed from above and appear as Rose only points alternating with the rounded petals.
There are multiple superior ovaries that develop into achenes. The aggregate fruit of the rose is a berry-like structure called a rose hip. Many of the domestic cultivars do not produce hips, as the flowers are so tightly petalled that they do not provide access for pollination.
The hips of most species are red, but a few e. Rosa pimpinellifolia have dark purple to black hips.
Each hip comprises an outer fleshy layer, the hypanthiumwhich contains 5— "seeds" technically dry single-seeded fruits called achenes embedded in a matrix of fine, but stiff, hairs.
Rose hips of some species, especially the dog rose Rosa canina and rugosa rose Rosa rugosaare very rich in vitamin Camong the richest sources of any plant. The hips are eaten by fruit-eating birds such as thrushes and waxwingswhich then disperse the seeds in their droppings.
Some birds, particularly finchesalso eat the seeds. While the sharp objects along a rose stem are commonly called "thorns", they are technically prickles —outgrowths of the epidermis the outer layer of tissue of the stem. True thorns, as produced by e.
Citrus or Pyracanthaare modified stemswhich always originate at a node and which have nodes and internodes along the length of the thorn itself. Rose prickles are typically sickle-shaped hooks, which aid the rose in hanging onto other vegetation when growing over it.
Some species such as Rosa rugosa and Rosa pimpinellifolia have densely packed straight prickles, probably an adaptation to reduce browsing by animals, but also possibly an adaptation to trap wind-blown sand and so reduce erosion and protect their roots both of these species grow naturally on coastal sand dunes.
Despite the presence of prickles, roses are frequently browsed by deer.
A few species of roses have only vestigial prickles that have no points.The following script is from "Amazon" which aired on Dec. 1, Charlie Rose is the correspondent. Draggan Mihailovich, producer.
