Distribution of Rosa nutkana in California -- "Nootka Rose"

Outline is extrapolated distribution as based on documented localities (dots) with identifications according to B. Ertter, mostly vouchered by herbarium specimens at the University and Jepson Herbaria.

California is the southern end of the range of the Nootka rose, which was described from Nootka Sound, Alaska. It is most recognizable as a coastal species, forming dense thickets at the edge of marshes, but it also extends inland in a more diffuse form of uncertain taxonomic significance, intergrading with R. pisocarpa.
