I bought dwarf red blackberry from the Friends School Plant Sale last year (2010) after seeing it at Eloise Butler Wildflower Garden. For the first summer it grew in a pot, with a saucer of water under it. It sent out many thin runners, several feet long, some of which contacted the ground and produced new plants. In the fall, I planted it in our new rain garden.
