SPECIES: Rubus discolor | Himalayan Blackberry
GENERAL DISTRIBUTION : The Himalayan blackberry is a native of the Old World [3,31]. However, it has become widely naturalized in the Northeast from Delaware to Virginia, and in the Pacific Northwest [3]. The Himalayan blackberry occurs from northern California through southern British Columbia eastward to Idaho. It is particularly widespread west of the Cascades [14] and is now abundant along the Snake River in southeastern Washington [13]. It is also locally established in parts of Utah and perhaps Arizona [19,31].
