Wild Blackberry

Wild Blackberries are thorny, upright perennials that produce white flowers in spring, followed by edible fruit in late spring to summer. These fruit attract wildlife. The stems grow 3 to 8 feet tall in an arching shape and spread vigorously by underground runners. Leaves have hairy, jagged edges and are divided into groups of three to five. They are green on the top and silver on the underside. Plants can quickly overtake existing vegetation, turning it into a prickly "cage."



Wild Blackberry is common throughout the United States.
