Thimbleberry adds a cool rainforest feel with giant leaves (up to dinner plate size) and edible fruit. Delicate red berries are delicious fresh-picked. This species appreciates moderate water, making it a good border for irrigated lawn. Plant with nettle-leaf giant hyssop, fireweed, and sneezeweed for layers of thick foliage and plenty of color.
