Description
Rubus thibetanus is a dense, prickly branched, clump- forming shrub that makes a superb security shrub. Fern-like, green leaves with sivery undersides cover the stems in spring, before the small, purple flowers appear in summer, borne singly from the leaf axils. Black, inedible fruits rep[lace the flowers by autumn and last into winter unless eaten by birds. Certainly an appealing, statement shrub in the winter garden once all the leaves have fallen. The arching branches show a beautiful white bloom that brightens dreary winter days. This hardy, deciduous shrub makes a good addition to the back of a mixed border where it will provide plenty of seasonal interest. Its silvery stems associate beautifully with blue flowered spring bulbs and the ghostly stems of silver birch. Height and spread: 2m (6').

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
