    Sorry I can't provide a pic but will try and describe adequately. I'm in south central MO and moved here last fall. There is a plant blooming now with a 5 petal white flower that is 1-1.5" across. These are on canes. Leaves are bright green with some texture to them and grow in groups of three. There are thorns. Elderberry? Blackberry?
    Appreciate any help.
    Thanks
