Brambles are a type of plant that produce berries, such as blackberries and raspberries. The berries are often eaten by humans and animals alike. Brambles have thorns on their stems, which can be sharp and prickly. These thorns can help protect the plant from hungry animals. Listen to learn about these amazing plants!

In the companion Brambles Video Lesson found in the No Sweat Nature Study LIVE membership, you'll learn so much more about the Rubus genus of flowering plants. That’s the fancy scientific name for plants in the rose family that are brambles.
We’ll get up close and personal with a few bramble plants and will identify their similarities and differences. Not only will we notice the physical characteristics, but you’ll create a nature journal page to show the similarities in the shrub structure, stems, leaves, flowers, and fruits.
