Thimbleberry - bare root
Bare Root - Rubus parviflorus
An excellent native bramble shrub with thornless stems - a treat for berry lovers, but not as much of a treat as the taste! Thimbleberry grows rapidly and forms dense thickets of upright 4-6' stems. The large, downy maple-like leaves are 4-8" across and the blossoms are pure white and 2." The tart, red, edible fruits tumble into your hand when ripe. Birds love these berries and often it is a race to see who gets the first taste! Both the berries and the sprouts were prized by Native groups. Thimbleberries like moist soils but will tolerate drier sites.
