Rubus fruticosus L

The conserved type of Rubus fruticosus L. consists of both an inflorescence and a primocane. The latter is very young but there is no reason to doubt that it belongs to the same specimen. One can easily find young sprouts of R. plicatus Weihe & Nees that are just like this one. It is even a good indication that the plant is really R. plicatus for e.g. R. affinis Weihe & Nees does not have this kind of young stems.
