Identification of a large bush!

Firstly...Happy Christmas!






Now to business image I saw this beauty in the park today - the photo doesn't do it justice really, but the branches are almost silver in the light and beautiful against a water backdrop.

Was wondering what it might be - anyone know?



Thank you 


  • Any chance you could go back and take a close-up of a branch, one of any leaves remaining (or on the ground) and I think I can see some hazel-like catkins - a pic of those as well.

    It's clearly a shrub with a weeping habit. I did think of Rubus cockburnianus, but it's not that. 

    Oh, and Happy Christmas to you as well!

  • Thanks LG image

    I couldn't get any closer because off Keep off Grass signs and rubbish camera phone!

    No leaves I could see remaining, no. May have to wait tip Spring or when no one's watching and climb over fence...

    Hi Jess, I think it is Rubus Cockburnianus, if it,s like a sprawly blackberry bush with prickles it is. Happy Christmas everyone xxx
