A Rubus or blackberry hybrid between R. trilobus and R. deliciosus from the late Captain Collingwood 'Cherry' Ingram who gardened in the village of Benenden in England.  This is about as good as Rubus gets in flower with large single white flowers 2 inches across on……...wait for it……...thornless stems!  Not a thug at all but a careless informal delight although some with control issues vertically support the lower part of the 8'-10' stems for a cascading fountain effect.  Well, that is pretty nice and maybe it is less that they have control issues and more that we are a bit lazy.
