Comma resting on Blackberry bush (Bramble) along nearby path. 27 July.
Dark Green Fritillary resting on raspberry cane in my Wiltshire garden. August 1999.
I grew Raspberry 'Autumn Bliss' in my previous garden in Wiltshire. Comma and Red Admiral butterflies enjoyed feeding on the juices of the over-ripe fruit.
Here in Cirencester I see these butterflies feeding on over-ripe blackberries which border the path heading towards the town. I counted 8 Comma butterflies along the path in September 2002.
Plant Type: fruiting shrubs
Fruits in September
Spread: 2m or more
