Blackcap Raspberry

Rubus leucodermis

Plant Description

A thorny deciduous shrub with unique whitish stems. Related to domestic raspberries, this bramble produces white flowers in April-July followed by tasty deep-purple, raspberry-type fruits. It grows in open forests and thickets, but does best with a little shade and some moisture. Flowers attract pollinators and fruits attract birds (and people).
