Home..... Menu..... Common name index..... Scientific name index..... Glossary ..... Blackberry page 1....

I have only tried to identify only a few of the local blackberrys. The blackberry microspecies most likely to be found are described below.


Rubus anglocandicans

First year canes more or less hairless. Anthers exceed the stigmas. Leaves 3 or 5 foliate.

Under-surface of the leaflets are felted and have some longer hairs.

Rubus ulmifolius

First-year canes purplish, coved with white scales with age. Anther and stigmas at the same level. The undersurfaces of the leaflets are evenly felted.
