We have a plant in our back yard that's nothing but a few stems with
thorns, and some leaves. It's creeping all over but there doesn't seem
to be any buds or flowers of any sort. We have 2 other different rose
plants, so at first I thought this would be one as well, but so far no
flowers. What else could it be?
i don't know your location (usda zone, etc., but more importantly, state
& city (or province if you're in canada). i,
myself, live in central new hamster and i have three different plants
just as you have described, all with different
names: 1) wild raspberry (Rubus); 2) virginia creeper; and lastly, 3)
maple-leaf creeping raspberry (Rubus oderata).
that one, too, is wild, and not terribly edible to humans, but deer and
other wild critters love 'em.
most raspberries bloom quite early and thus, at least in northern new
england, don't develop fruit cuz bees and
other pollinators are not quite "out" yet (NOT still in the closet, per
se ;o), just too cold and wet for them yet.)
it'd REALLY help if you could post a pic in the garden binary group OR
go to http://www.gardenweb.com , ask
your question there, AND put in a pic....the only problem there is they
accept only pretty small pix, but they tell
you in advance.
