Was out walking in Avondale Park yesterday and while wandering through the woods there were plenty of these bushes growing with a lovely little pinky purpley flower.

Can anyone let me know what these are? I'm intrigued. (It's probably a simple identification for those in the know!)

Thanks

Looks like a clematis but which one that is another question.

Quote... (It's probably a simple identification for those in the know!) ..true!

The quiz "Who wants to be a millionaire" was just like that...easy if you happen to know the answer! B...hard if you didn't!

Sorry Greengage but it is Rubus
Rubus spectabilis to be precise

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rubus_spectabilis

There is a double flowered one ..Rubus spectabile Olympic double.

I was going to suggest maybe a reverting-to-wild raspberry. Are these salmon berries quite widespread? There are lots of similar, growing around here.

Great stuff Silver Surfer and thanks also for the link. After i read about the plant I was thinking I've probably eaten some of those berries before, thinking they were just wild raspberries...
