There are white Dewberries blooming everywhere you look on Cape Cod! They are such a pretty wildflower. So simple, yet so delicate. I saw these on the boardwalk of Red Maple Swamp Trail at Fort Hill.

“Dewberries are a group of species closely related to the blackberries. They are small trailing brambles with¬†fruits, reminiscent of the raspberry, but are usually purple to black instead of red.¬†Dewberries are common throughout most of the Northern Hemisphere and are thought of as a beneficial weed. The leaves can be used to make a tisane, and the berries are edible and taste sweet. They can be eaten raw, or used to make cobbler, jam, or pie.”

Very interesting, don’t you think?

  1. Now I know what grows wild here in Windsor! The berries that follow the flowers look a lot like blackberries.
