Rubus  spectabilis 'Golden Ruby'
Zoom In Photo:

This golden version of a lovely BC native forms a thicket of deciduous woody stems clothed in lush golden leaves and tipped with deep pink flowers in early spring. Perfect to naturalize in a dappled light woodland or to incorporate into a mixed hedge. Salmonberry is one of the main plants that migrating rufous hummingbirds depend on for their northward spring journey. Help them out in style with 'Golden Ruby'.
