Autumn Bliss Raspberry Bush

Availability: Out of stock

Delicious fruit, no trellis needed! Blackberries, Raspberries, and their kin are always thought of as summer fruits! They bring chin-dripping goodness to 4th of July celebrations and summer sorbets and they only fruit for a few weeks. But, come the chill of autumn, they are long gone.

Not anymore! Autumn Bliss Raspberry Bush (Rubus 'Autumn Bliss') delivers its juicy sweetness from August right up until the first frost!

Autumn Bliss is a popular modern Raspberry with stout canes that are shorter, and narrower-growing than average. This also means that they won't need a trellis or support! Talk about easy care! The fruit comes on canes that grow that same year - known as Primocanes! It produces large deeply flavored berries over a long season that starts in August and runs unabashedly until the first frosts.

Autumn Bliss has received the prestigious Award of Garden Merit from The Royal Horticultural Society in the UK, which only goes to show how great this plant will be in your own garden! Highly adaptable throughout USDA planting zones 3 to 8, these remarkable fruiting bushes only grow 1-2 feet wide and 4-5 feet tall!

Planting and Application:

No support means unlimited landscaping options! The white spring blossoms and textured green leaves make the Raspberry a beautiful ornamental in its own right! Any sun garden or any size can grow plenty of bountiful fruit on these self-fertile shrubs!

A single specimen is delightful in a Kitchen or Victory garden and there's no worry it will overshadow the veggies and herbs! Those cheerful blooms bring in the butterflies and bees, that will pollinate your other edible plants as well! Plant one in a Cottage Garden or in your backyard berry patch, just be sure you can reach all sides of your shrub for easy harvest.

Everyone loves a friend, so pair this late fruiting Raspberry with an early producer or an Everbearing variety for increased pollination and delicious Raspberries all growing season long! Groupings and rows can be planted beyond the garden and used as double-duty edible landscaping!

Why not use a thorny Raspberry along your property line to help keep trespassers out and screen out the neighbor's messy backyard? A few in your mixed shrub border will feed birds while providing shelter. A grouping around your pool deck seating adds a bit of privacy and healthy snacks while sunbathing!

No yard? That's no problem! Pot up your Autumn Bliss in a large planter with some strawberries around the base. Park it on a porch, balcony or patio in the sun and snack on berries while you sip your coffee in the autumn months!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Autumn Bliss needs full sun to flower and fruit the best, and good air circulation and morning sun to keep those leaves healthy! Provide a well-drained enriched site with regular moisture access. Plus a 3-4 inch deep layer of arborist mulch and spring application of fertilizer will further help your canes produce those big juicy berries!

Every winter or late fall (after harvest) cut Autumn Bliss back to ground level and watch as it shoots up again in the spring, year after year! This variety is very prolific! It is disease and aphid-resistant.

  • Easy Care in Full Sun
  • Moderate Yet Regular Moisture Needs
  • Needs Well-Drained Soil
  • Prune Fall/Late Winter
  • Disease & Aphid-Resistant
