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