Catch the Honeyberry Craze! The Berry Blue Honeyberry (Lonicera caerulea var. kamchatica 'Berry Blue') will become the star of your garden! Relatively new on the scene in America, though it's been around for a while. It is just now beginning to catch on in home gardens. It is a sweet but tangy fruit with a flavor like wild blueberries and currants. Delicious, healthy, and packed full of antioxidants and vitamins, Honeyberry are considered Superfruits for a reason!
The pretty plants have small cream-colored flowers in the spring and nice flat-green leaves through the fall. They ripen in early summer, a full two weeks before the strawberries begin to redden up It is native to parts of Siberia - yes, THAT Siberia where winters are colder than cold. If it can survive there, you know that it will make it in your northern garden without batting an eye.
Also known as the Haksap berry, they are great eaten fresh out of hand, but they are fantastic when made into jam, plus you’ll be the star of the farmers market! Berry Blue needs a pollinator, so order one of her sister plants, too, like Tundra Honeyberry or Honeybee™.
Keeping your bush under a net while growing is a great way to ensure the berries aren't enjoyed by the wildlife before you can get to them yourself. Not only are wildlife attracted to these juicy fruits, but they also attract many pollinators! Butterflies and bees will flutter about your garden!
These bushes are great backdrops to vegetable and herb gardens or as accents and unique specimens in large pots and planters. Growing a hefty 6-8 feet in height and 4-8 feet in width, there are few deciduous shrubs that have such delicious fruit while providing privacy and screening too!
Honeyberry bushes do best in full sun, you’ll get the most fruit in at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Loving consistent moisture and enriched soil, be sure to provide a thick layer of mulch over the soil surface to hold in moisture and insulate the roots.
We bet you'll be the first in your circle to have some of these, so order now before your friends beat you to it. Order your own Berry Blue Honeyberry and its pollinator today from NatureHills.com!
