The name R. fruticosus refers not to a single species, but is used in the aggregate sense, comprising some 2,000 described European species. Many of the species arose as a result of hybridization and apomixis. All species belonging to R. fruticosus L. agg. are exclusively European, except for those that may have spread to other parts of the world.
