The Q&A Archives: Winberry Winterizer

Question: I have succesfully transplanted a Wineberry plant from my Father's house this Spring. Is there anything I can do to help it through the winter in CT? He doesn't do anything to them, because they grow wild in the swampy bit that was my Aunt's land.

Answer: Wineberry (Rubus phoenicolasius) is quite winter hardy and grows wild throughout your region. A heavy organic mulch over the root area should be sufficient protection. You may also want to be sure it is watered during dry spells since it does prefer damp areas. I might also mention that this plant is considered an invasive exotic, here is more information about that from the National Park Service web site.
