About the Dewberry Shrub
It takes the dewberry shrub about four to five years to produce berries. However, while you wait, you will still benefit from the beauty of this lovely bush.
The thick foliage is medium to dark green. At intervals along the stem, alternate compound leaves occur. The leaves usually grow in attractive clusters of three leaflets, though some may produce five leaflets. The leaflets are a pleasing oval shape and measure up to three inches long and one inch wide. The undersides of dewberry leaves are pale green and tapered at the tip.
Dewberry fruit is edible and consists of numerous drupelets with tiny seeds. Springtime brings delicate white blossoms that bear small green berries. The berries fatten up throughout the early spring. As the fruit matures, the berry color changes from light green to bright red to an intense purple or black.
