Requires a male pollinator such as Berry Blue. One male will pollinate up to five females. Will begin bearing fruit in 2-3 years.
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. Borealis Honeyberry prefers partial shade and average moisture. It is extremely easy to grow and thrives in almost any growing condition.

Comments about American Meadows Haskap Berry Borealis - Female Plant:
Received the plant i think too early in the spring, but planted it outside as directed. never showed any signs of growth. waited a month plus, pulled them up and through them away.
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
