Rubus calycinoides "Creeping Raspberry"
Rubus provides textural interest in the landscape with its dark green, puckered, 1½" leaves. Leaves may turn burgundy red in the Winter. Rubus is evergreen in the Southern zones but can be semi-evergreen in Zones 6-7. Known as Creeping Raspberry but not grown for its fruit, it has insignificant white flowers in late Spring and followed by an insignificant production of small, yellow-orange berries. Rubus makes a good ground cover in hot, dry areas with ample watering and well drained soil.

Plants will be shipped semi-bare-root (with little soil) from December to April. As the plants are dormant (sleeping), it is perfectly safe to send them bare-root. Winter is the safest and the best time to ship plants.
We cannot ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
