Red roses

There are hundreds of varieties of roses in the world, but one of the least known and most sinister is the Bloody-Red rose.

The Bloody-Red rose is one of the few flesh-eating shrubs that prefers a cold climate. It is found most often in Denmark, Sweden, and the Netherlands, where it lives along trails in the woods. When a curious hiker bends over for a look, it strikes. This rose's weapon is, of course, its thorns. However, the Bloody-Red, unlike normal roses, can grow its thorns at will. The Bloody-Red then uses the hooked shape of the thorns to snare prey. Then, it tosses its victim into a hole in the middle of the petals, which then closes. The Bloody-Red rose looks like an average rose. It has a green stem with thorns, and a bright red flower. However, this rose has a black ring just above where it enters the ground. Each time it eats, the ring will expand slightly for a few days, then go back to normal. No two of them will live within 50 feet of each other, or they will fight over prey.

Once you are in the plant's clutches, you have only seconds to use the simple (relashio) spell so it will free you. This will only work when you are ensnared by the thorn, once you have been tossed in, it's over. However, the second it lets you go after you say (relashio), it will try to ensnare you again. To avoid this, use (petrificus totalus) or (impedimenta) and it will give you time to get away. Even though the spells to escape the creatures are simple, performing them on the spur of the moment in mortal danger could be difficult. Thankfully, there is a surprisingly simple way to keep the plant away in the first place. The key is to bring a real rose with you. It does not need to be in your hand, but as long as you have one in your back pack or pocket, you will be fine.
