Honeysuckle

(Lonicera caerulea edulis) This attractive, arching bush, which looks a little like a blueberry, grows quickly to about 4í tall. Small, white, funnel shaped flowers appear in February or March and develop into delicious, teardrop-shaped, light blue fruit that ripens in May with high amounts of ascorbic acid and bioactive flavonoides. New to America, but widely grown in Russia, the blueberry-like fruit may become a valuable new fruit for Northern growers. Raintree offers late blooming cultivars that perform well in both cold climates and in the moderate Pacific Northwest. Plants prefer sun and well drained soil. Little pruning is required: just remove overlapping and weak branches. Space about 6' apart or 3-4' for a hedge. Select two varieties for pollination. USDA Zones 2-8.
