‘Purple Flowering Raspberry’ Rubus Parviflorus
Thimbleberries are a native plant similar to a raspberry, but quite unique.  You can find them growing in the wild, in shady places, sometimes on cliff edges!  Thornless canes with very ‘sugar maple’ looking leaves (spot on resemblance).  They make lovely light purple flowers that transform into dark purple fruits with deep, complex flavors.  Not a heavy cropping plant, but so unique and special it belongs in the shady corners of any good forest garden!  We’ve seen some fruit production on canes in nearly complete shade.

Size:
Between 3’ to  4’ on average

Site Preference:
One of the most shade tolerant fruiting crops we know of.  Right at home in the woods, or deep in the hedgerow.  Seems to like rich soils.

Hardiness:
Zone 3
