Small-flowered Raspberry in Flower at Rogers Reserve 16/05/15

While removing weeds at the Friends of Rogers Reserve working bee today, we saw this beautiful little plant in flower.  On calling Trish Gardner over to identify it, she informed us that it was a Small-flowered Raspberry (Rubus parvifolius).  Also known as "Native Raspberry", this little fruiting plant is a Native Australian species.   We were lucky to see this plant in flower at this time of year and will keep an eye out for the raspberry fruits.
Trish has written a great article previously on this lovely plant which you can read here:  Small-flowered Raspberry Toowoomba Plants
