Dewberry Plant - Rubus

The dewberry plant is a fruiting plant with berries that look similar to blackberries.

The dewberry is found in the United States and Canada and is easy to grow in zones 6,7,8 and 9. They require at least several hours of full sun every day for best growth and will thrive in nutrient dense soil that is well drained.

Because the dewberry plant roots will tend to grow horizontally, they should be planted about 4 feet from each other, so it is best to plan your garden and landscaping space before planting. Once the plant is rooted, it is a deficient maintenance plant that needs only occasional watering during winter, fall and spring. Dewberry plants are drought resistant during the summer months, but the soil should be kept moist to maintain excellent plant growth.

Dewberry plants add a lovely visual element to any garden. Their trailing vines can grow up to 4 feet and spread up to 4 feet. The plant will produce fruit in 4 to 5 years after it matures. In early spring, the dewberry plant will grow small white flowers that will turn into tiny green berries. In late spring, the berries turn deep reddish purple and are ready to eat. The berries are sweet and can be used for pies, cobblers, jam or enjoyed fresh off the vine. The leaves can also be used for a refreshing tea.

In the winter the dewberry leaves turn a stunning shade of red. Since the dewberry plant is a perennial, you will be able to enjoy the fruit for years to come. The shiny green pointed leaves of the plant will add a lively, woodsy feel to your front or backyard. The plant also provides a lovely habitat for birds, bees, and other wildlife.
