Lingonberry - Koralle, Vaccinium vitis-idaea 'Koralle', offers an exciting addition of color and fruit for northern gardens. It has been well known in Scandinavia, but healthy berry is becoming popular in our country. This Lingonberry produces two crops of fine quality bright-red berries a year. This low, dense, evergreen shrub creeps to form a dense thicket; also produces white blooms twice: once in spring and again in summer! With adequate frost protection, both blooms will give way to fine crops of sparkling red, pea sized fruit very high in vitamin C and other fruity acids. Many different dishes and condiments can be made from this delicious fruit. The berries have a slightly tart taste when eaten fresh, but really excel in sauces, jams, jellies, and wines. Plant in full sun or filtered shade for areas with warmer summers. Can be used as a specimen, planted under trees or hedges, or planted together to form a solid groundcover.
