A thornless raspberry with showy purple blooms! Leaves look more like a maple than a rose, and turn light yellow in the fall. A mounding form and colonial habit make it a perfect canadate for borders. Large berries are readily eaten by wildlife, but not palatable to humans. 

Plants will self pollinate, but more than one plant is required for best fruit set.
