A beautiful Japanese briar with rich coppery or burnished-red, bristly stems in winter and tasyy, bright red, edible fruits in midsummer. In our opinion, it is well worth cultivating simply as a fruiting plant, but it also happens to be very ornamental and makes an attractive garden feature. The fruits may be used to make delicious jellies, pies or cakes.
Supplied Size: 2L deep containers (approx 3 years old, 30 - 50 cm tall)
A 6 year old Rubus phoenicolasius covered in fruit, growing in our woodland gardens. We made this video shortly before harvesting all the fruit to make a pie. Very tasty!
