DEWBERRY (Rubus trivialis)


NEW FOR 2017!
Tons of seeds in stock. Live plant options have bee configured (late April), but need to root in before being set to IN STOCK. Live plants of this Florida Native are ‘rescues’ from private property that soon will be developed into housing. Have a ton of photos here somewhere will add asap…

Blackberry’s ‘secret’ cousin. All that Blackberry goodness, without the HARD seeds and ruthless thorns. YOu can barely even tell you’re chewing on the seeds! In passing, one wouldn’t tell the difference between the two. Just about everything seems ‘the same’, but this one has a low to the ground growth habit, where the blackberry branch of the family grow tall often vicious ‘canes’. Although they’re definitely covered in pricklies, they dont annihilate you like if you attempted to hassle a blackberry ‘briar patch’ (have walked thru thick patches wearing shorts without hardly noticing). This is more of a groundcover, and naturally is seems to be prevalent in open full sun arid patches of the property (while native blackberries prefer to grow along tree line edges (especially with inner wetlands oh man they get like 12′ tall canes). Dewberry grows fine here (Zone 10A) in the very well drained, scorcher areas, in total sand even, under year round FULL sun where they occur on this site. Under cultivation it should do extremely well. Berries taste as you’d expect from blackberry. Have sampled a lot of fruits, and there is variability from plant to plant as they’re wild, but some of them actually taste like Concord Grape! Intend to offer some nice selections in the years to come…

Plants are from mature cuttings. It is very clone hardy (for cuttings).
This is an very durable tropical plant that is well suited for xeriscaping and international shipping.

Product Description


Shipping Upgrades:
-CHOICE: Bigger box + choice select + less trimming = superior specimens normally not provided under the flat rate system. They usually raise the shipping price too much so they are sold off locally to make room.
We can ship out all year round, but that doesn’t mean we can ship to you. If you live in a FROZEN state and don’t want to wait until the thaw we can add heat packs. The parcel will also be wrapped / sealed  / taped more thoroughly than usual. For best results add on this upgrade for as many true tropical plants you order, or know that each upgrade unit will provide up to 2 heat packs to the parcel. If you only add 2 heat packs to a bigger order we can’t be held responsible if things die. A lot of stuff in the inventory can deal with being cold actually, but other stuff simply cannot. If you see this message then the order will be held until you thaw, unless you add heat packs (72 hour). Unless you have it shipped to your workplace (recommended), they might be labelled advising the USPS hold the parcel indoors at the Office for you to pick up (they may or may not actually do it).
