    This blackberry relative from Asia must have one of the most beautiful leaves imaginable! The five leaflets are all pleated in a texturally stunning way and even this doesn’t prepare you for the silvery reverse.

    It is a suckering evergreen shrub to 2.5metres tall that likes a moist soil and some shade from the hottest sun and if happy you may need to take a hand in controlling it! Although I like the idea of a great drift in the garden.

    Remove the oldest stems yearly to keep it young and vigorous and wait for the questions from unknowing friends.

    I have young stock in 15cm. pots at $22.50DSC_0386
