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. Mature height 2".

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.
Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage- very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plant are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in fall and winter and will lose most of their leaves - looking dead and dry - very normal. They will flush out in spring.
We cannot send ship some plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by department of agriculture.
