The "snag" is that the thornless ones still bloom, make fruit, and produce
seeds, and the seedlings usually DO have thorns. The thornless ones were
planted in the highway medians here in Oregon and seedlings from them have
thorns, though perhaps fewer than from normal plants.
There's actually a thornless variety of multiflora rose used as a rootstock
for rose grafting. I wonder if that could be planted instead of the
"standard" multiflora. That way
the roses could be had w/out the nasty thorns.
