These are a bit different. Rosa acicularis (prickly rose, prickly wild rose, arctic rose) is a holarctically (arctic regions around the globe) distributed species  that hasn't been particularly altered or bred by humans.
In a North American context, this plant's range is fairly broad but mostly northern. US range map here, Canadian range map here. Although it is often abundant where it actually does occur, it is actually an endangered species in Illinois, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont . It is listed as secure in most of its Canadian range, except in Nunavut where it is sensitive and New Brunswick where it may be at risk . With that in mind, please treat the species with reasonable care if you encounter it in those places where it has legal status, and with the regular respect that is due any undisturbed population elsewhere.

R. acicularis is a source of food for a number of species including the snowshoe hare, grouse, some rodents, and deer . It is also a shelter plant for many birds and small mammals .
If you encounter this species, one of the first things you will notice if you get close is the wonderful smell. This smell is advertising to pollinators; the plant is announcing that there is nectar available, and in this case, unlike Cypripedium acaule, the advertising is accurate. R. acicularis produces plenty of nectar, which attracts bees and other pollinators [5,7]. I observed several pollinators on R. acicularis, notably those pictured in this post.
