Rubus cissoides

Climbers with prickly leaves, which are arranged so that the plant slides forward, but the backward bend of the hooks prevent it from slipping down again. Creeping vine found throughout native bush in New Zealand usually climbing over large trees that from an impenetrable thorny barrier1. Produces white flowers from June to August followed by orange-red berries between November and April. The flowers are dioecious (individual flowers are either male or female), but only one sex is to be found on any one plant so there are both male and female plants4
