The botanical name has changed over the years (from Rubus pentalobus or calycinoides to Rubus hayata-koidzumii) , but the nature of Taiwan Creeping Berry, or Creeping Raspberry remains the same. A mounding evergreen ground cover reaching about 12 inches in height, it can eventually spread to five feet wide. The coarse-textured leaves turn a bronzy color during the cold months and turn a deep green as the weather warms. White flowers appear in the summer that may turn into salmon-colored berries. This is a great choice for sunny hillsides or retaining walls, and is not attractive to deer.
