Asian Bramble      £6.50

Rubus alceifolius             Low stock

From Southern China is this decorative member of the bramble family.  It has proved to be good for  ground cover here in the shade of my lovely weeping silver birch, similar to Rubus tricolor but much more productive, being less aggressive and easier to manage.

With white flowers from spring onwards and large green leaves with brown markings on them it brightens up wherever it is and is easy to grow. The arching stems have soft bristles and are probably shorter when grown in full sun (under the trees they are about knee height) and you will also get more of the tasty orange fruit too, which is available through the latter half of the summer and into the autumn.
