Blackberry Plant These leaves belong to the Blackberry (Rubus allegheniensis) plant, which has strong hooked prickles along the stem.  Stems and leaves are green in the summer and turn deep purple-red in the fall.  Leaves many stay on the plant into winter.  Blackberries are a favorite food of birds, deer, and bears.
