Taiwan. Rubus pentalobus (calycinoides) has been a boon to many gardeners with difficult part shade to shade sites. Because it is evergreen, it does a fine job of masking awkward slopes. Small, single, rose-like flowers add their passing show. By late summer and early fall, brilliant orange-red fruits take over as the foliage takes on autumnal tints. As the Latin name implies, the leaves are five-lobed. A Great Plant Picks selection.
