Rubus lambertianus is a flowering plant species in the genus Rubus found in Southern China (including Hainan), Taiwan, Japan, and Thailand.[1] Its ploidy is 2n = 4X (tetraploid).[2] The ellagitannins lambertianin A, B, C and D can be found in R. lambertianus.[3]


Rubus lambertianus is a lianoid, semi-deciduous shrub that can grow 3 m (9.8 ft) tall. Flowers are white and 7–9 mm (0.28–0.35 in) in diameter. Mature berries are red and 6–8 mm (0.24–0.31 in) in diameter. In China, it occurs on slopes, roadsides, montane valleys, stony ravines, grasslands, thickets, sparse forests, and forest margins at elevations of 200–2,500 m (660–8,200 ft) asl.[1] In Taiwan it is common in thickets at medium elevations.[4]
