Rubus odoratus (Fr: ronce odorante | En: purple-flowering raspberry)

Regular price $12.00 CAD
Regular price Sale price $12.00 CAD


The most attractive raspberry, these can be easily identified by their purple rose-like flowers and big maple-like leaves. The berries are edible and sweet tasting, but have a somewhat fuzzy texture. 

In addition to the fruit providing nourishment for birds and other animals, the canes provide excellent winter nesting habitat for bees and other insects that nest in their hollow stems. 

This raspberry seems more shade tolerant than others, and I regularly find it in fairly shaded conditions.
