Wild Blackberry Bush
Wild Blackberry Bush: TN Nursery presents the wild blackberry bush, a North American native species particularly abundant in the United States. The wild blackberry bush is an easy-to-grow, low-maintenance plant that is multi-functional.
Not only does it bear sinfully sweet and juicy berries, but it also makes a lovely ornamental. The five-petaled white flowers grow in beautiful clusters sometime between late spring and early summer and then bear those famously delicious berries in the later part of the summertime.
Some gardeners choose the wild blackberry bush to take advantage of its spread, not for the fruit. Each plant can grow as much as five feet across and tall. They grow in brambles or thickets and can liven up an area of the yard that may otherwise go underutilized.
Wild Blackberry Bush Care And Grow Information
When you plant your wild blackberry bush, remember the five-foot spread. Allow them some elbow room for future growth. Although the bare root you receive from TN Nursery might look small now, it will mature in just a few growing seasons.
The wild blackberry shrub is intriguing because its root is perennial, but its foliage is biennial. That means the canes grow, bear fruit, then die back; however, fresh canes will emerge to replace the dead ones. Annual pruning, either at the end of the season or early spring before flowers develop, will keep a wild blackberry bush in good health.
They prefer soil that drains well, and you should plan to fertilize them once yearly during late spring.
Because the wild blackberry bush is a native species, it is drought-tolerant. It prefers about an inch of water per week, mainly as it produces blossoms and berries. However, it is resilient and can tolerate short dry spells.

Only been in the ground for a week, but looking good. Hope to have lots of blackberries in the next couple of years. Great service & packing. Would buy again!
These 3 arrived on time and looked very healthy. Planted them in a nice sunny protected spot.
These came in very well packaged. After I planted them, I noticed it said wild blueberry bushes. I also purchased rabbiteye blueberry bushes so I assume they just wrote wrong on the tag. Planted them and will see how they do this spring. Live in southern Indiana.
