Description

An improved, low-maintenance Russian honeyberry. No annual pruning! April blooms lead to big 1” elongated berries that grow in clusters, and are a nice balance of tart-sweet, leaning toward sweet. Plants are vigorous with dense branching, meaning lots of fruit: about 8 pounds’ worth at maturity. Use fresh, or dehydrate for super-healthy kids’ snacks. Keep plants evenly moist, as the root system is shallow. Mature size: 5’ tall and wide. Ripens mid-June to mid-July. Best pollinators: Happy Giant, Blue Moose or Blue Diamond. Zones 2-8 and Zone 9 in California.

I needed to pollinate the other honey berry I am buying. This sounds like a hardy, healthy and vigorous plant.

Finally, Received My Gallon Pot Blue Palm Honeyberry This April!
I wanted this Russian plant due to my Russian family heritage. I had earlier ordered a Blue Palm and a Blue Moose Honeyberry as a pollinator in February of 2020, but they never shipped and were canceled. When I saw this plant available again, I immediately ordered it and happily received it only a little over a week later! FedEx delayed the shipment over a weekend, but the plant still arrived in basically good condition with only a few leaves slightly damaged. The Blue Palm is now doing very well in a small protected area next to my home in central Alabama - still in its Stark pot. I'll keep it there a while before repotting to a larger pot, and then for a later planting near my driveway. I'm now waiting for a newly ordered Stark Blue Moose to arrive in May - that will also get the same care before planting. I'm looking forward now to enjoying Honeyberry fruit in the coming years - if the Honeyberry plants prove themselves hardy here in zone 7B. These bushes are both supposed to grow 5'X5', so they should also require little pruning care and look great by my driveway! There's really nothing quite like having nice shrubbery you can see every time you drive by it, but can also stop by to enjoy picking and eating seasonal fruit from.
