i.d. please? I planted this summer 2009, it was labelled a white Japanese Anenome. As you can see, there are no flowers, it is sending out long shoots along the ground, and the leaf is nothing like the Japanese anenomes flowering at the moment. Many thanks as always.




Its a cut leaved Bramble/Blackberry. Oregon Thornless produces viable seed that birds spread. Sometimes the progeny are thornless but many have small reduced prickles down the stems. This of course may be a cutting and actually be the variety Oregon Thornless of course. The person selling must have made a mistake.

sticking my neck out here but it does look exactly like my thornless blackberry. Just popped out & took a few photo's for you to compare, there in my photo album.

you got there before me Fractal but pretty much confirms it's a blackberry.

thanks all, that is so annoying: I got it from a big Centre selling perennials at 5 for £10.00, so while I can understand that customers might switch the labels you would think it would turn out to be another flowering perennial, not a bramble! Will move it to somewhere more suitable, once again many thanks

take your photo of plant back to the garden centre if possible, dont worry about not having a receipt & they should be obliging re replacement or refund although a replacement of what you wanted in the first place is better. A bramble is so far removed from an anenome that they should do the decent thing. Keep the blackberry, they are delicious ;-)
