Rubus fruticosus agg. 'Oregon Thornless'
A popular variety with ornamental leaves and thornless stems. The saucer-shaped, white flowers flushed with pink are produced in summer, followed by medium-sized fruit with a mild and juicy flavour in late August to late September. It is a good variety to grow where people are likely to brush past the stems or trained over an arch or trellis.
This plant is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.
