Rubus caesius   Dewberry C DD N

Rubus caesius flower

There aren't many of the apomictic Rubus species which I can recognise easily but this is one of them. It has large white flowers with full touching or overlapping petals and three lobed leaves. Usually by the seaside the blackberry bush you see will be this one.

Rubus caesius is very common throughout England both inland and at the coast. There is some in the southern most part of Scotland but records quickly diminish almost to zero as you go north. It is found on the coast of Wales and mostly in the south in Ireland.
