Red Raspberry
Rubus ideaus(variety)canadensis / Rose Family

I found this plant blooming above Norris Dam in early May. When I first saw it, I wasn't sure it was really blooming, but a closer look revealed the tiny white petals. In late summer these flowers will have become luscious, juicy red berries! The stems and flower buds are very hairy.
Perennial
Where seen: Norris Dam SP, Great Smoky Mountains NP
