RUBUS chamaemorusSpring3080
Cloudberry, Bake Apple10-25cm  Zone: 1
Native throughout the northern parts of the Northern Hemisphere, usually growing in bogs. This is a low, very cold-hardy, creeping shrub with large, palmate foliage. White flowers in early summer are followed by delicious, soft, salmon-coloured fruits in late summer to early fall, which are a very important fruit crop in Scandinavia and in Newfoundland. Seed wild collected in Norway.

The ripe fruits are golden-yellow, soft and juicy, and are rich in vitamin C. When eaten fresh, they have a distinctive tart taste. When over-ripe, they have a creamy texture and flavour somewhat like yogurt. They are often made into jams, juices, tarts, and liqueurs.

RUBUS idaeus var. strigosusEarly Summer3079
Wild Raspberry1-2m

RUBUS occidentalis3086
Black Raspeberry2-3m  Zone: 4
A delicious berry native to eastern North America, much used for breeding work. The black raspberry is closely related to the red raspberries Rubus idaeus and Rubus strigosus, sharing the distinctively white underside of the leaves and fruit that readily detaches from the carpel, but differing in the ripe fruit being black, and in the stems being more prickly. The black fruit makes them look like blackberries, though this is only superficial, with the taste being unique and not like either the red raspberry or the blackberry. Wild collected in Ontario.

RUBUS odoratusSummer to Fall3074
Purple-Flowering Raspberry180cm  Zone: 3
Undoubtably the showiest native species in the genus and a thornless member of the Rose family. Native to eastern North America, it grows in thickets and rocky woods. A rambling, suckering shrub with large, lobed maple-leaf like foliage and bristly hairs on the stems. Rich-pink fragrant blooms begin in early summer and continue into autumn, followed by edible berries, resembling raspberries, which can be eaten fresh, or made into jam or wine. This is a very fine shrub for planting under the shade of large trees, as it will tolerate dry shade. Seed wild collected in Ontario.
Germination Instructions: Cold treatment recommended
