September Raspberry Bush

Availability: Out of stock

The delicious September Raspberry Bush (Rubus 'September') has both summer and fall crops of sweet, red or yellow berries on suckering canes! Summer fruits are borne on second-year canes and fall fruits on first-year canes, giving you a double helping of luscious fruit on a cold-hardy, upright, everbearing Raspberry!

The snow-white blossoms are a bee's delight and you'll enjoy them buzzing about your shrubs twice a year! The bright red fruit glisten like jewels on your shrub among the toothy, pleated bright green leaves for a shrub that's as pretty as it is functional in the edible landscape!

The upright canes are lined with thorns; new canes are produced via suckers that spread from the base of the plants. They'll happily colonize an area in your backyard, both deterring larger intruders and giving shelter to smaller ones. The thorns are worth dodging for the succulent fruit they hold! This prickly shrub produces flavorful, medium-sized fruits that are juicy and tasty and are loved by people and wildlife alike.

Planting and Application:

The sweet aroma of the September raspberry accents the distinctive taste. Southern states may see berries ripen in August but the maximum flavor is seen in September. Use the berries for fresh eating, canning or freezing.

These thorned deterrents are ideal border, property division and privacy hedges that also feed you and supply you with lots of healthy homegrown goodness. Create banks or naturalized areas for birds, that also form wonderful privacy from nosy neighbors or hide eyesores beyond their lush green foliage and snow-white blossoms.

  • Big Juicy Red or Yellow Berries
  • Lush Pleated Green Leaves & White Blooms
  • Spreading Suckering Canes - Colonizing & En Masse
  • Great Hedges, Groupings, Bird Habitat

#ProPlantTips for Care:

September performs best in full sun with plenty of water, and it requires good fertilizing when blooms begin. Mulch the roots well and mow around the canes to keep any unwanted stragglers from taking over. Everbearing Raspberries produce a crop in autumn on the tips of the canes that formed that spring. Leave these canes in place overwinter and they'll reward you with a summer crop the following spring. When those 2nd-year canes are harvested, they can be pruned to the ground. Leaving the new, younger green canes to start the cycle over.

  • Full Sun
  • Very Well-Drained Enriched Soil
  • Prune Early Spring
  • Mulch Well & Water Regularly
  • Prune Second-Year Canes to Ground

For later harvest to extend your berry picking enjoyment, choose the delicious September Raspberry Bush from this year! You'll be glad you did!
