Description

Native to the west coast of North America from southern Alaska south to California, Rubus spectabilis 'Olympic Double' has spectacular fully double, magenta-rose coloured flowers in late spring. These flowers contrast well with the bright green foliage.

An easy to grow Rubus which once planted will naturally spread and form a large clump, but can also be grown in a large container if garden space is more limited.
