Blackberry (also known as bramble) is a member of the rose family. It has very thorny semi-upright stems and is often found as a tangle of stems in hedgerows and un-controlled areas.
Blackberry forms dense, long-lived clumps of thorny vegetation. It scrambles over the ground and low plants, has an extensive rhizome system, occasionally layering and seeding. Blackberry tolerates most soil types, drought and flood but is intolerant of dense shade. It is common in hedgerows and open areas where weeds have been allowed to grow uncontrolled. It produces edible black berries in late summer.
