The stems of roses are typically heavily armed with prickles of various shapes and sizes, which are sometimes known as thorns. They can be upright, climbing, or trailing bushes. Although there are variations within each of the categories, there are generally five basic scents: Old or Traditional Rose (also known as Damask), Tea, Myrrh, Fruit, and Musk.
