Lonicera 'Borealis' Honeyberry

Item #35677


Sweet and tangy

A compact plant that withstands the cold.

Honeyberries are just becoming part of the American landscape, and you will want to be among the first to grow this tangy, nutritious fruit. Lonicera 'Borealis' Honeyberry is not only an edible, it is a multiseason shrub with blooms and a well-branched, rounded shape. Best of all, it prefers a bit of shade.

The Lonicera 'Borealis' Honeyberry fruit may remind you of blueberries, both in color and flavor. Oblong and a dusty dark blue, these berries are quite tart, with an underlay of sugary sweetness. Excellent for canning and jamming as well as fresh eating.

The Lonicera 'Borealis' Honeyberries arrive in late spring or early summer, just before the strawberries start coming in. You can extend your season of fresh fruit in the garden with Lonicera 'Borealis' Honeyberry. Just grow it near any other honeyberry for best fruit production.

Expect this deciduous shrub to reach about 4 to 5 feet high and wide. In spring, before the berries, it covers itself in fragrant white blooms that attract the very first pollinators of the season. You will love starting the edible garden a few weeks sooner with Lonicera 'Borealis' Honeyberry. Hardy up to -40 degrees Fahrenheit and best in mulched, moisture-rich soil.
