very pretty white flower like cherry, but very invasive

chueh(7B)April 19, 2008

I have this weed in the yard everywhere. It shapes like poison ivy with 3 leaves but with zig zag edge and thorns on stems. I always try pulling them out when I see one, although they are tough. The property next to mine is bare ground. There are tones of this kind of weeds. The white flowers look like Cherry's, except petals being so distanced with each other. What kind of weed is this?

It is what I grew up calling a dewberry. Is a relative of the blackberry/raspberry family. Makes wonderful berries if you can beat the birds to them. Ours were much larger than most berries.

Thank you maifleur. I don't think I can compete with the birds. LOL...... It's a mazing though that they can grow so well in very unfertile soil. Well, I guess that's typical for weeds...
