Northern Dewberry

Rubus flagellaris 

        

An aggressive low-growing ground cover which spreads by surface runners and thrives in poor soil and drought conditions. The prickly stems offer a good deterrent against unwanted visitors in the landscape.  White booms appear in June which later yield red edible berries in late July/early August. Attracts birds. Found mostly in sandy soil along shorelines. A good species to restore the landscape, stabilize a slope against erosion and  attract wildlife.
