Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterPink flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsEdibleThorny or spinySubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Rubus albescens. Origin: India, Malaysia. Unlike common raspberries from up North that can not tolerate tropical heat, Mysore Tropical Raspberry grows very well in hot humid climates. It grows very fast into a scrambling shrub with flexible stems and tends to bloom and fruit throughout the year. The fruit is red when unripe and purple black when ripe, very juicy and sweet. The clusters contain as many as couple dozen fruit. It is also a very ornamental plant because it has almost white canes and the leaves are green above and whitish underneath. The plant is cold hardy to upper 20s F; young plants are more cold sensitive. Great to grow in large containers and will produce large amounts of fruit. Good drainage is essential for good growth.

Rubus sanctus, Burning Bush of the Bible

Large shrub 5-10 ftGroundcover and low-growing 2ftFull sunModerate waterPink flowersEthnomedical plant.
Plants marked as ethnomedical and/or described as medicinal, are not offered as medicine but rather as ornamentals or plant collectibles.
Ethnomedical statements / products have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. We urge all customers to consult a physician before using any supplements, herbals or medicines advertised here or elsewhere.Attracts butterflies, hummingbirdsEdibleThorny or spiny

We obtained this plant in 2016, it was grown from the seeds brought to us from theplant in St. Catherines Monastery.
Holy Bramble, Burning Bush of the Bible. Rubus sanctus is a symbol of God revealing himself to man. An instance of it can be found at the Chapel of the Burning Bush on Mount Sinai, where it is revered as the original burning bush of the Bible. This longevity and location lead to its Latin name. Derivation of the botanical name: Rubus - latin name for Blackberry, Raspberry; Sanctus - sacred.
Rubus sanctus is a very long lived fruit shrub. The plant has no central stem; instead it produces long thin branches which can reach 5-6 feet in length. Branches have spiked thorns that bend downward. The flowers vary from pale to dark pink, followed by blackberries.
The nature of the burning bush is a source of debate among botanists and Biblical scholars. Some believe that the burning bush was not a bush, but a figurative representation of a supernatural phenomenon. Others contend that God spoke through a natural bush. In the entire Old Testament nowhere does God reveal more about himself to one man than in the passage of the burning bush. In fact, this passage is sometimes called the Mosaic revelation of God about himself. The St. Catherines Monastery spiritual heart is the Chapel of the Burning Bush, an unassuming structure of tremendous religious significance. According the oldest monastic tradition, this chapel sits atop the roots of the same Biblical bush "that burned with fire, and was not consumed" (Exodus 3:2) when God spoke to Moses for the first time. Today, it is very large in size, and many monks and scholars agree that the bush's presence is the very reason St. Catherine's Monastery developed in the first place.
