Rubus fruticosus (weed) L. agg. - (European blackberry)

European blackberry has been introduced into several regions outside its natural range and has often become invasive. For example, it has been introduced into Australia in the 1830s. It was planted to control soil erosion, but became a serious invasive weed, mainly in grasslands and forests. Many million $ are spent each year on its control.

Rubus fruticosus is an aggregate of species. It includes for example the weedy Rubus anglocandicans.
