30418 - Blue Moon Honeyberry
Lonicera caerulea
Blue Moon

A good pollinator for Blue Velvet. Withstanding temperatures of -40 degrees, this unique member of the honeysuckle family hails from Eastern Siberia. Virtually unknown in America, the bushes display small, white, slightly fragrant flowers in March followed by fruits similar in color and flavor to large blueberries, ripening about two weeks before strawberries. Easy to grow with no pest or disease problems. Prefers partial shade where summers are hot, but plants are happy in full sun in the north. Not self-fertile, so plant 2 varieties if fruit is desired. Bears 1 to 2 years after planting. Compact plants grow 3 to 4 feet tall.
