Description: This Australian raspberry is attractive for it's large fuzzy leaves on arching stems -- perfect for a tall vase. But it also produces small edible raspberries consumed by birds which spread seeds. This plant will make a nice addition to any queach because it spreads by layered stems. It's not overly aggressive though.
