Rubus fruticosus, Blackberry bramble, is one of the worst and most invasive introduced weeds (arguably, the worst — in 1925 it was officially declared New Zealand's worst weed) . Blackberry brambles have sharp thorns which can inflict nasty scratches if you are not very careful with these plants. They grow really fast.
