A new variety of dwarf raspberry, Rubus idaeus Groovy is also a highly decorative shrub with brilliant attractive foliage that's orange-yellow in Spring, golden in Summer. Highly compact, it perfectly fits the trend towards small spaces, ornamental & gourmet gardens: in pots or in the soil, alone, in groups or as a fruiting border. Groovy fruits from the first year – large red and sweet raspberries. Its branches are little thorny, an advantage where there are children. Easy to manage and productive, prune it lightly at the beginning of Spring.
It's a non-remontant variety, but when conditions are right, the fruiting period will be extended as soon as there are new shoots. Highly resistant to the cold, it is at its best growing in full sun or partially-shaded spots where the soil is fertile, rich in humus, moist and well-drained.
