    I was wondering if someone could tell me what type of rose bushes are all over the cape?

      Two common roses found all over the cape are Rosa rugosa (beach rose) and Rosa multiflora, an invasive rose that is an escape from cultivation. Many different cultivated roses are found in gardens throughout the cape.
