FREE Shipping
on orders of $80+*


Compact grower! Plants have a rounded and upright habit, with clean, grass-green foliage and lovely white flowers in early spring. Ideal as a hedge or living fence, or as a novel addition to a small backyard orchard. Large, deep, bluish-purple berries taste similar to wild blueberry tinged with black currant. Great for eating fresh, but be sure to set aside some of your harvest for truly special jam or jelly. A note to home winemakers: honeyberries are valued for their currant undertones. Cold-hardy. Ripens in late May. Best pollinators: Borealis or Polar Jewel.

Hi, I am a novice gardener and just planted a Cinderella Honeyberry bush without realizing it needed another one near by for pollination. I have a blueberry bush and a raspberry bush nearby, would they be suitable pollinators?
Kristin S on Mar 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, it' needs to be another honeyberry variety. Both Borealis: and Polar Jewel: make excellent pollinators for Cinderella.
I know it's not listed as ideal, but will it be possible for Cinderella to pollinate the Berry Blue variety?
Cyrah C on Jun 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, that will work. They're both early bloomers.

Cinderella Honeyberry
I planted Cinderella Honeyberry in May 2016. It was very small - 2 very thin twigs about 3 inches long. It has probably doubled in size to abut 6 inches long in one year. I purchased it as a polinator for Borealis honeyberry, but it did not bloom this year. I'm not giving up on it, but I am dissapointed with the size of the plant I received. It will take at least another year to see if it is compatible with my other bushes.

Wonderful Plants for a Great Price
The plants had a long trip to us, and they were packed well enough to withstand the abuse of the careless folks who deliver here. Just barely though, and that's no fault of Stark Bro's. They'd been beat up badly on the last leg of their trip, and we didn't think either would live, but they survived a harsh winter and have come back in full-force.

Very happy with these tough little berry bloomers, and we'll be ordering more!
