I would not immediately have thought “Rosaceae”, so this is a useful post, Mza.
I liked this “ Common names are often descriptive but few are as ironic in their description as that of Climber’s Friend, *Cliffortia ruscifolia . The species is well-known for growing amongst rocks and dry cliffs. It has a very deep tap root that holds the plant firmly. This makes a good safe grip for a mountaineer or rock climber. However, Cliffortia ruscifolia ’s “friendliness” is tempered by the prickly leaves that readily scratch and pierce any hand that comes near to it.”
