Arching thorny canes bear white flowers from May to June followed by plump and tasty blackberries, major nectar source for native and honey bees, large leaves are palmately compound on new canes and trifoliate on 2nd year canes (which produce the flowers and fruit), spreads by tip-rooting and seed. Although these plants are drought tolerant they need sufficient moisture during fruit ripening or their fruit will simply dry up.
Native Range: Labrador to MN, south to AL
Germination - Difficult: Physically scarify and soak overnight then cold stratify 8 weeks. May take multiple years
