Rubus argutus is a North American species of prickly bramble in the rose family. It is a perennial native to the eastern and south-central United States from Florida to Texas, Missouri, Illinois, and Maine.[2] Common names are sawtooth blackberry[3] or tall blackberry because of its habit of growing up to 2 meters (80 inches) in height.[4]

The flowers are white with large petals, borne in mid-spring.
