Himalayan Blackberry (Rubus Armeniacus)

About Himalayan Blackberry

Himalayan Blackberry is a robust invasive plant species and difficult to get rid of. It resembles an arching woody shrub whose canes are thorny and vine-like. The flowers are 5-petaled and vary from white to light pink in colour. It forms large, dense, impenetrable thickets that limit the movement of large animals and takes over stream channels and banks. Thickets can increase flooding and erosion by preventing the establishment of deep-rooted native shrubs. Be persistent, even though it has tasty berries it overtakes native wild berries, plants and flowers.
