There's a variety that's hardy to 3? I thought 5 was the limit.
R. parviflorus, thimbleberry, is a tasty relative hardy to zone 3. We have
them at our cabin, now buried under snow.
I just checked one of those use-your-zip-code-to-find-your-USDA-zone things,
and it says the summer cabin is in zone 9. It was only off by 5 zones...

Subject: [NAFEX] Salmonberry
Does anyone know of a nursery that sells Arctic Salmonberry (Rubus
spectabilis) plants? The Oregon variety, R. spectabilia, takes zones 5 - 9.
I need one that'll thrive in zone 3. Thanks.
