Japanese Wineberry - Rubus phoenicolasius

Japanese Wineberry - Rubus phoenicolasius

Also known as the Chinese blackberry, Rubus phoenicolasius is both a delicious fruit and highly decorative. The berries, borne on 2nd year wood like a summer raspberry, are quite small, golden-yellow ripening to red, juicy, sweet and refreshing; they ripen all at once in August. The plant is very vigorous and needs room, not a heavy cropper, but trouble-free and easy to grow. The arching canes and calyxes are covered with soft, brilliant red bristles, and look particularly wonderful when backlit by the sun in winter. Bridges the gap between Summer- and Autumn-fruiting raspberries.
