Cutleaf Evergreen Blackberry
Rubus laciniatus, the Cutleaf Evergreen Blackberry or Evergreen Blackberry, is a species of Rubus native to Europe. It is an introduced species in North America. It has become a weed and invasive species in forested habitats in the western and eastern United States.
Rubus laciniatus is a deciduous, bramble-forming shrub growing to 3 meters tall, with prickly shoots. The leaves are palmately compound, with five leaflets, each divided into deeply toothed subleaflets with jagged, thorny tips. The flowers have pink or white petals. Fruits are similar to the common blackberry, with a unique, fruitier flavour.
