Purple-flowering raspberry has dome-shaped red berries. The berries aren’t usually eaten because they are extremely seedy, though they have a nice flavor. A very ornamental plant, it is hardy to about -30°c. The glandular hairs on the stems have a powerful resinous scent somewhat like cedarwood. A vigorous suckering shrub, it has perennial stems without prickles. Plants in this genus are notably susceptible to honey fungus.

Easily grown in a good well-drained loamy soil in sun or semi-shade. Grows well in a sandy soil but does not like clay. Prefers a semi-shaded position. Does well in a woodland garden though it is less likely to fruit well in such a position.
