Formosan Carpet Raspberry
The Formosan Carpet Raspberry is one of the fastest spreading and toughest edible ground covers that we know of! In addition to its attractively textured evergreen foliage and low maintenance nature, it also produces little edible yellow-orange raspberries that are quite delicious. It is perfect planted to cascade over a wall or along a pathway.
