I chose this plant because I am a Swedish-American who enjoys lingonberry jam very much and I would like to be able to harvest the berries themselves.

I love Lingonberries! My yard has just had a makeover and now I have room for these wonderful plants! I'm sure the birds will like them too. One for us and one for the birds!

Lingonberry butter and Swedish pancakes with lingonberries--I could eat them every day. The plants that arrived already had blooms, and were nicely leafed out and green. High-quality stock!"

Had the Lingonberry crepes at IHop the other night with my daughter. We loved them. Since we have a farm we decided to plant a couple for the taste, the flowers and fruit they produce!

will this be ok in alkaline soil?
Aaron J on May 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I live in zone 7 in northern NM where the chokecherries grow wild in alkaline soil. My Aronia seem to like my garden soil where I compost and mulch to build soil. They seem to do fine in both the wetter irrigated sections as well as the drier parts of the garden. I use Aronia as both a decorative, food producing, and nitrogen fixing plant.
Is this suitable to grow in a container?
LyndseyBrom on Mar 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Lingonberry is best to grow in the is a perennial and takes a few years before you get many berries.
Does this bush keep the leaves all year?
Chris on Nov 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Lingonberries are evergreen.

very satisfied
Can't say enough about how good the plants are from Stark. This little gem arrived vibrant and healthy and has been thriving in my garden for a year. Looking forward to seeing it produce berries this year. It's why I'm a repeat customer.

Cute little plants; beware of sale pricing
Got 2 of these 2 years ago - they are doing well. Very compact, slow growers, nice splash of green in the winter. Flowered in their 2nd year but no fruit.

I liked them so much when I saw a sale on them months later I purchased several more. I believe these later purchases were of the same "batch" as my initial purchase, and so when I received them they were totally root bound. All but one of the new ones have died, all planted within feet of the original ones which are thriving.

So I like the plant itself but beware of sale pricing because it is likely plants they have had on hand for a while and you might get root bound potted plants that won't survive transplanting.

I am keeping an eye on the ph of the soil. Plant seems to be healthy.

My Lingonberry bush is still quite small, so it's hard to review it at this point. It needs to grow more.
