California Blackberry Plant of the Month

Each month, we feature a plant of the San Gabriel Mountains. The Plant-of-the-Month page is taken from the interactive CD-ROM, Plants of the San Gabriel Mountains: Foothills and Canyons V2.0.

This viny California native is found in moist areas of the San Gabriel Mountains, such as along streams. It is winter deciduous, but its long prickly stems are already beginning to leaf out.
