Rubus calycinoides Growing and Maintenance Tips

R. calycinoides is native to the grasslands and thickets of Taiwan. Grow in full sun and well-drained, average to dry soil. May also be successful in deep shade. Drought tolerant once established. Propagate by cutting away rooted stems or layering in early spring and fall. Excellent groundcover, container plant or rambling wall or hillside specimen, or allow to creep over rocks in a rock garden. It won't climb trees or nearby shrubs and is easily controlled with mechanical edging.
