A handsome and prickly briar, Rubus cockburnianus 'Golden Vale' has bright golden leaves all summer and in winter, dazzling, chalky white arching stems. The lovely golden yellow foliage makes this an eye-catching ornamental plant in the summer and the white stems give fantastic winter interest.

  • Notes: Rubus cockburnianus 'Golden Vale' makes an effective garden plant if pruned back to 30 cm (1 ft) above the ground each spring each year or every two years before coming into leaf.
