Silver-Stemmed Bramble  £6.50

Rubus biflorus                                   Young plants available

We have been unable to find a more user-friendly name for this Himalayan native.  In spite of that it is quite commonly grown as an ornamental, as it has wonderful thick white stems that really look good in the winter. 
In habit it is more like a raspberry than a bramble, the spiny stems can reach up to 2m or more and will either need supporting or can be cut shorter to encourage it to branch out.

Flowering about the same time as the summer raspberries, the fruit forms in a calyx protecting it from the birds and bugs, and when ripe is an amber/yellow colour, quite sharp but refreshing and tasty, good in a mixed bowl of summer fruit.
