Plant Species of the genus Rubus

Information about this genus
Name: Rubus
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: Because this genus has such a large distribution, it has a variety of habitats and the only place its members will not grow naturally is in dry, arid, desert-like conditions. Most species thrive in fertile, humus-rich, moist, free-draining soil and some will grow in moist to boggy heathland. Many species will grow in full sun to moderate shade, and some, such as Rubus spectabilis, will even grow in deeper shade under deciduous trees. A large number will grow in acid to neutral soil but quite a few will grow in alkaline soil; R. caesius and R. ulmifolius tolerate chalky soil. They can be propagated in several ways. Divide suckering species in spring. Take half-hardened cuttings from evergreen species and root them in a seed tray heated from below. Take softwood or hardwood cuttings from deciduous species, or layer. Grow from stratified seed in spring, but as some species hybridize freely, they may not come true from seed.
Description: There are more than 250 species of climbing, low-growing or upright shrubs, often with prickles on stems and leaves, within this genus from the Rosaceae family. Found throughout the world, from mountains to lowland thickets and coastal regions, many species are cultivated for their ornamental value but even more are cultivated as a valuable food source. Most species have biennial stems or canes, which means they produce fruit only on second-year wood; the leaves on the first and second year?s growth often have a different shape.
