Common name: Wineberry
Rubus phoenicolasius is a species of raspberry native to Asia. The red-orange, translucent fruits in summer are covered by a reddish, hairy calyx and have a tart, winey taste. The species epithet comes from the Latin word for red, phoenicus. We have one plant on the Winter Walk, planted in 1997.
