Rubus bambusarum

Pot Size: 2 litre (deep)
Price: £25.00
An evergreen climbing shrub, forming long very slender scandent pale green stems to 5m long supported by small bristly 'barbs'. Bearing leathery narrow tri-foliate (3 separate leaflets) of bamboo-like dark glossy green leaves, that are silvery white below, to 20cm long. Producing slender racemes of unremarkable pink flowers in summer followed by conspicuous red fruit. Easily grown in any aspect in any reasonably fertile soil, best supported/trained on a wall, stems root on contact with the soil. Syn. R. henryi v. bambusarum. No idea why, as they appear to be very similar, one tri-lobbed the other tri-foliate.
