Revolutionary and space-saving, the Bushel and Berry® Raspberry Shortcake® (Rubus 'NR7') dwarf Raspberry Bush has fantastic ornamental appeal and healthy edible fruit! A few would also look terrific in just about any sunny spot in your garden and become accented in bright white blossoms and jewel-tone red fruit!
As delicious and delightful as a bowl of shortcake on a summer day, your Raspberry Shortcake® will grow to be an alluring presence in your yard from the first summer you acquire it. This dwarf variety is thornless, with a compact rounded form that will perfectly conform to your space limitations.
Its gentle arching habit will certainly create a lovely presence in your landscape, even without its fruit and flowers. Spring brings lovely, petite flowers that transform into tantalizing berries by mid-summer. The textured, toothy and pleated foliage is a delight in of itself!
Shortcake® is perfect for growing in containers and would look great on your porch or balcony. They’re that space-saving! You'll welcome the butterflies and fat bumblebees who flock to your blooms. You should also be prepared to marvel at the songbirds that seem to rejoice at the presence of a Raspberry plant in their yard. You'll soon understand their excitement when you sample the prolific and sweet fruit of your harvest every summer!
Your Raspberry Shortcake® is an ouch-less cane and incredible dwarf that won't require staking, and it's self-pollinating so you can have one or more with no problem! It's small enough to tuck into vegetable and kitchen gardens, to harvest from your paito or even in a hanging planter on a sunny porch! Include among your other pollinator garden, cottage border or even front yard edible landscaping!
Fruiting bushes like Raspberries need full sun to flower and fruit the best. Provide an organically rich, well-drained moist location and mulch the roots well. Prune Floricane bushes after harvest, removing the canes that fruited this year, to the ground.
Not just attractive, but ornamental and edible sweet harvest, the Bushel and Berry® Raspberry Shortcake® will be a delectable addition to your garden today, but only if you hurry and order yours from NatureHills.com!
