Japanese Wineberry (Rubus phoenicolasius). Japanese Wineberry was introduced from Asia and is commonly found growing in disturbed sites, and along streams, rivers, and roads.  The plant can be recognized by the dense red, gland-tipped hairs on the branches and the tendency for its branches to create arches.  The bright red fruit reaches maturity during midsummer to early autumn.  Its fruit can be used to flavor tea and make pies and jams.
