Description:

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. The fruits of this plant are eagerly consumed by a number of animal species, including many birds and mammals.[1] The thickets provide valuable cover for animals.[1]
