Rubus occidentalis

Common name: Black Raspberry

Native plant

One of our native and delicious raspberry species. In nature it grows in moist areas in our woodlands and savannas, but does well on disturb soil as long as it is not too dry. Look to employ them as high ground-cover on exposed sites to get the best color from the stems in the fall.   The more sun it gets the more fruit it will set.
