This plant is driving me insane, its the orange stemmed prickly plant shown in the images. It grows absolutely everywhere. I cannot cut them down they spring right back up and hurt as well. They bear no fruit or flowers any time. They aren't wineberries or rasberries, I have some growing in the same area and these spikes aren't hairy like wineberries. They're close to rose thorns. They are similar to poison ivy leaves but the spikes don't seem to be toxic. I would greatly appreciate help, thank you! Smiling

Welcome. Smiling
Welcome! Welcome!

If you hadn't said no fruit, I would have guessed a raspberry of some sort from that foliage. Lots of folks on here have infinitely more knowledge than I do, though, sure some will chime in soon.
If you never ask, the answer is always 'no.'

Agreed. Looks like raspberry to me.
