Berry Blue is a male Haskap Berry. A male is required to pollinate the female varieties such as Borealis, to produce fruit. One male plant will pollinate up to five females.
The Haskap Berry Shrub, also known as Blue-Berried Honeysuckle or Sweetberry Honeysuckle, is native to the colder Northern Hemisphere, thriving in colder growing zones. This hardy shrub has waxy-green foliage that produces elegant yellow/white flowers, followed by blue berries in the late spring. The bright green foliage keeps its color throughout the fall. We recommend pruning in early spring, after there is no more chance of frost in your area.
This gorgeous shrub grows to be about 5 feet tall, making it perfect for a hedge or for a privacy planting. The berries are sweet and can be eaten fresh or used to make jams and jellies. Berry Blue Honeyberry prefers partial shade and average moisture. It is extremely easy to grow and thrives in almost any growing condition.
