GROUND COVER RASPBERRY
Rubus x stellarcticus
A low growing herbaceous groundcover. A Raspberry plant without thorns! The plants grow to be a mature height of five inches tall and spread by rhizomes, making a thick mat of bright green trifoliate leaves.
In late spring one inch pinkish lavender flowers appear and the red fruits will appear in middle of summer. As the fruits ripen the sweet aroma of Raspberries amongst the planting will attract the raspberry lover to the area to taste the delicious fruits. Fall color is tremendous with foliage showing shades of red and burgundy.
At least two of our four cultivars should be planted to ensure cross pollination. The cultivars Sophia, Anna, Valentina and Beta are available. These cultivars were selected in Sweden by Dr. Gunny Larssen. They were her favorite varieties for flavor, plant vigor, fruit quality and extreme hardiness to Zones 1 - 7.
