Rubus odoratus

Common name: Purple Flowering Raspberry

Native plant

Purple flowers are visible from quite a distance. Blooms in June and sporadically the rest of the summer. Fruit is edible and ripe in August, which is a dry aggregate with good flavor. Outstanding brown exfoliating bark exposes a white inner bark. Tends to create thickets and is best used in shrub borders. Prefers good garden soil and full to 1/2 day sun. Can grow in denser shade but will not flower or fruit well. Fall color is a muted yellow.
