Creeping Raspberry

Rubus calycinoides

Native to Taiwan, an evergreen shrub that slowly creeps to form a very dense, low groundcover mat. Attractive, deep green leaves partially turn shades of rusty burgundy-brown with the arrival of fall and cooler weather. Tiny white flowers peek out from between leaves in spring and summer, followed by production of edible orange berries that fully ripen in fall. Thick foliage creates an adaptable groundcover, and serves as an effective barrier by smothering weeds.

Common Nursery Plant Forms

We use plant forms to describe how a plant has been grown in our nursery. Here are some common nursery plant forms explained.

A bush or multi refers to a shrub or small tree grown with multiple stems.

A standard has been trained to have a single trunk.
Many bush/multi plants are also available in standard form, so be sure to check the form when you add plants to your cart.

A column refers to a tree or shrub grown into a tall, narrow shape.

An espalier is a plant trained to grow in a two-dimensional form against a trellis.

Staked plants will be tied to a wooden or plastic stake during the growing process. This technique is generally used on vines but is sometimes used for certain trees or shrubs.
