Clasping leaves of the Poaceae have an extra structure called the ligule. The Dog Rose (Rosa canina) is a scrambling shrub-like rose species native to Europe, northwest Africa and western Asia. ...

Sometimes, especially on younger plants, partially formed phyllodes bearing reduced leaves can be seen.
