Ghostly white in the garden

Ghostly white in the garden

rubus rosaceae
Rubus fraxinifolius is beautifully white, almost ghostly looking in the garden. It looks spectacular.

The plant in the garden has formed a thicket of purple stems with a white bloom that can be wiped off. The plant is very rare, I bought it from Cally Gardens in 2014
It has grown very quickly. As it can get involved in growing into other plants I tied it back to a frame so that, as it grows, it will go backwards into the hedge. It has grey, green ferny foliage in the summer. I haven’t had any fruit off it yet.
