Source? likely to be reintroduced: 

R. multiflora has been commonly used in many countries as a rootstock for other roses. In some regions it now occurs relatively widely, so its further spread within these countries is always possible. Most R. multiflora plants develop from seeds that fall relatively close to the parent plant. Plants can also spread locally to form large thickets by layering, the rooting of stem tips when they contact the ground.
