It is not every nursery owner that would recommend a Blackberry to their clients, but I am not every nursery owner! The Ghost Bramble is a thicket making arching shrub with grey green leaves and small white flowers which really comes into its own in winter when the plant is bare and its white coated canes can be seen at their best. Like all self-respecting blackberries it will need control but so does your lawn! Remove old canes each year and unless you need another one don’t let the tips touch the ground! I have a few in 20cm. pots at $28.50.
