An arching dec. shrub-vine. Thorny with whitish stems, green leaves and red to black raspberry-like berries. I\'ve only seen western Raspberry in the redwoods/Douglas Fir around Willits. It was a bramble in a shady seep. In the nursery it has been unstable unless it has regular water, then it will take sun to shade. The rasberries taste like a regular raspberry without the flavor.
