Western Isles Wildflowers
Western Isles wildflowers is a collection of information about our Hebridean wildflowers including identification hints, traditional herbal uses and general plant lore.
Salmonberry is a cane related to the bramble.
Not a native plant of the Western Isles, salmonberry is from North America.
In the Western Isles salmonberry is a cultivated plant which is usually grown for it's ornamental pink flowers, which has escaped and widely colonised the castle grounds in Stornoway.
Salmonberry flowers in early March when few other flowers are producing nectar so is a welcome food source for early emerging bees.
Also known as the Arran Raspberry.
