Rubus -parviflorus Nuttall
The slightly crinkled petals of the whiteflowering raspberry are
conspicuous against their background of rich green maple-shaped
leaves. It is fully as attractive as its eastern relative, the flowering
raspberry, which bears purple flowers. The whiteflowering rasp-
berry grows from two to six feet tall, the lower part of the stems
being brown and woody. It frequents rich woods often at high alti-
tudes in the mountains. The berries are disappointing to the taste,
and full of small seeds. The plant belongs to the Rose Family, its
range extending from extreme northern Mexico to California and
Alaska, and eastward to Michigan and westernmost Ontario.
In the vicinity of Glacier, British Columbia, where the sketch was
made, and all through the Selkirk Mountains, it is especially abundant.
This specimen was obtained at an altitude of 3,500 feet.
