Try Lonicera caerulea Honeybee (Honeyberry) in your garden, a well-fruiting shrub that proves extra hardy through the winter down to -40⁰C (-40⁰F). A reliable alternative to other soft fruit like blueberry plants, Honeybee gives you lots of fruit every year on self-fertile plants.
The fruit is like blueberries in juiciness but slightly tarter in taste with a pleasantly sharper aftertaste. Before fruiting in summer your plant produces a flush of fragrant white flowers in spring.
As a tall shrub Lonicera caerulea adds structure and height to your garden and attracts important pollinating insects like bees and hoverflies.
We recommend that you let your shrub establish and grow in its first and second year. Simply enjoy watching your shrub grow and mature. In the third year prune your plant to keep it well-shaped and healthy. Prune a third of the older stems right down to the ground, and lightly prune the side shoots all over to encourage flowering shoots to develop.See Full Description +
