Raspberry Gold Leaf
This rare, unique, and valuable new plant bears heavy bunches of sizeable, deliciously sweet, bright red raspberries, which also ripen in late summer and well into autumn, very late in the year when all other similar raspberries have long finished. But these plants are clad in striking, bright golden yellow leaves which are completely resistant to scorching whatever the weather, making a distinctive statement, whether in the garden or in a large pot on the patio. These unusual plants are called primocanes, meaning they fruit a year EARLIER, on stems that have grown up the SAME YEAR, not the second year as with normal raspberries! And so, the subsequent final potential is for TWO fruit crops, the first in late July, then a second bigger yield in September, October, and incredibly even into a mild November. And finally, it is completely hardy and can resist temperatures as low as -35° Celsius, making it surely the most attractive raspberry ever produced, even mixed with shrubs and flowers.
