Thimbleberry - Rubus parviflorus I was surprised to see thimbleberry growing in Vermont, as I think of it as a PNW plant. The berries are vibrant and edible. The leaves are used for tea and toilet paper.<br />

  2. Wasn't expecting that at the end...'leaves are used for tea and toilet paper'! Is that an unripe berry there on the left Christine? Posted 8 days ago
    1. Ha, yes! You can dry the leaves for tea, but since they are also large and soft, they are ideal for use as toilet "paper" if nature calls while out in nature...

      That is an unripe berry on the left. They go from pale pink to bright red!
