Summer planting
Contrary to popular opinion, summer planting is fine as long as adequate water is provided throughout any prolonged dry periods. This allows you to take advantage of increased summer growth.
Rubus schmidelioides
Height: 3m;  Spread: 3m
Vine
An attractive but prickly vine, Much smaller than the relative Rubus cissioides. If planted in a place that is out of the way it would look good on trellis.
