Flowering Raspberry

I had never before seen these native New England wildflowers until the July day that John and I went exploring in Sutton, Vermont. We found a huge growth of Flowering Raspberry on Underpass Road. I thought they were rugosa at first, but the leaves, stems and blooms are completely different. The flowers of the Flowering Raspberry can be red, pink or white — all on the same stem!
