(Bundle of 10)
Dry, disturbed sites from thickets to open forests. Produces small raspberries, red to black in color.
While the crown is perennial, the canes are biennial. Grows vegetation one year, flowers and fruits the second, and then dies. The tips of the first-year canes often grow downward to the soil in the fall, and take root and form tip layers which become new plants. The fruit is 1–1.2 cm diameter, red to reddish-purple at first, turning dark purple to nearly black when ripe.
Prefers open sites (clearings, road edges, shorelines, or open forests). Yummy edible berries.
