Rosa multiflora and wild blackberries are prolific this year in our neck of the woods. They sprawl everywhere.
The Rosa multiflora can grow up trees as tall as 10-15 feet.
The wild blackberries are equally as prolific. They look particularly fabulous draping over fences with their thick clusters of pure white flowers. The contrast between the delicate white flowers and the rugged fence poses a picturesque country scene.
Wild blackberries are delicious fresh. They are one of the healthiest fruits, loaded with antioxidants and vitamins. They are very resilient and chances are that you can find them on your walk or bike ride in parks or along country roads. Wild blackberry bushes are very thorny. If you plant to pick them, be sure to wear long sleeves and gloves. Bring along sturdy containers to store them because they bruise easily when ripe.
