Blackberry - Leaves


The blackberry leaves are arranged alternately along the stem with each leaf consisting of 3 to 5 leaflets.

The compound leaves are heavily toothed on the edges, somewhat prickly, and bright green in color.

Blackberry and raspberry plants may be difficult to tell apart; however, blackberry  leaves are light green in color on the underside, while raspberries have silvery undersides.
