Roebuck Berry      £6.50

Rubus saxatilis                 In stock

Although a member of the raspberry family, in leaf and habit it more closely resembles a strawberry plant, spreading along the ground by runners. Very hardy and a native to Scotland and Northern Europe, in Sweden it is called Stenbär, which means stone plant and indeed it's low growing and creeping nature makes it an interesting addition to a rockery where it would be most at home. 

Easy to grow, it prefers an alkaline soil with sun or shade and may even reward you with some fruit, which is like a small red bramble with an acid but agreeable taste.
