Rubus Ulmifolius

Rubus ulmifolius is a species of wild blackberry. It’s a very tall brambly shrub, it can reach up to 5m. Leaves are deep green on the top, but covered with soft white hair underneath.

It’s flowers are pink or white and its fruits are black, of course. In fact they are deep purple, but such a deep shade they seem black when completely ripe. This kind of fruits are called compound drupe, which meeeeans that they are formed from multiple drupes (stone fruits). Read the full botanical description here. I love to learn new terms with each plant. 🀍
