Lingonberries offer an exciting uncommon addition of both beautiful colored berries and high quality fruit. Also called European cranberry, partridgeberry and foxberry, this super hardy evergreen shrub grows 6 to 16 inches high and spreads slowly through underground rhizomes. Grow them just as you do blueberries, placing them in will-drained soils with generous additions of organic matter such as peat, bark or sawdust. Cross-pollination will improve production. Set them out as individual specimens, in rows or planted together to form a solid ground cover. Requires very little fertilizer used once in the spring is sufficient. Grows best in filtered sun or shaded from hot afternoon exposure.
