A Fragrant Bloomer and Vigorous Berry Producer

The Honeyberry Blue Velvet is a flowering and fruit producing shrub that's the best of both the honeysuckle and blueberry world.

Honeyberries are part of the honeysuckle family, and have white fragrant blooms every spring to let you know winter has passed. The flowers have a sweet scent, similar to honeysuckle blossoms. It will drift through the neighborhood, making your yard smell the most fragrant, and your neighbors jealous.

Place Honeyberry shrubs in containers and keep them on your porch so their blooms will greet your guests with their fresh scent, or place a few indoors to give your home a natural floral scent.

Unique dusty blue berries are produced by these vigorous growers, they're similar to blueberries, but have an oblong oval shape. They have a firm texture, and taste like blueberries, only sweeter.

Pick a few berries off of your plant for a juicy snack that's sweet yet tart, but also very healthy because honeyberries are filled with essential antioxidants and nutrients making them perfect for smoothies and dessert recipes!

Once you start baking with honeyberries your recipes will never be the same and your pies, jams, and more will have your family and friends coming back for seconds, and maybe even thirds! Everyone will wonder why your cobbler tastes better than ever before.

Save money by growing tons of delicious berries in your own yard. The berries found in super markets are often very expensive and don't taste as good as berries grown naturally yourself, without any harmful chemicals or pesticides.

Honeyberry Blue Velvet bushes are extremely easy to grow, they'll adapt to your natural soil, and don't need acidic soil, or any soil amendments, like other fussier berry bushes.

Don't worry about the cold. Honeyberries are extremely cold hardy and can withstand the frigid temperatures up north, down to -40 degrees!

Honeyberries need another variety to cross pollinate with, be sure to pair your bushes with compatible partners like the Honeyberry Blue Moon variety.

People are catching on to the fragrant blooms, and sweet berries that Honeyberries provide. They're growing in popularity and selling out fast. Be sure to order yours before they're gone!

Honeyberry - Blue Velvet™ Pollination

Honeyberry - Blue Velvet™ are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional pollinator will drastically increase the size of your crop. Below are the most effective pollinators we have chosen for your area...

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Honeyberry - Blue Velvet™

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Honeyberry - Blue Velvet™.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Honeyberry - Blue Velvet™ gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Honeyberry - Blue Velvet™ again after the transplant is complete.

Love having a variety of berries in my yard. Promised tot be an abundant yield.
Michelle B on Apr 7, 2017
Have tried Blue Berries and they are too fussy about soil amendments.
This plant will tolerate almost any soil, including clay, which we have lots off.
They will also tolerate drought and shrug off brutal winter temperatures like Chicago winters.
Hope this is all correct information, taken from an article written by Jan Riggenbach from Omaha, NE. on March 5, 2017 in the Daily Herald Mc Henry County, Illinois.
Klaus P on Apr 3, 2017
Love blueberries, theses should be even better.

Never tried it but it sounds tasty and easy to grow

I picked this item as a cross-pollinator for my other honeyberry
John K on Mar 19, 2017
I wanted blueberries but wasn't excited about the idea of bringing the bushes inside or moving to a greenhouse for the winter. Judging by the description of these berries, that won't be an issue.
Matthew W on Feb 21, 2017
I wanted to add another type of berry to my berry patch and this one sounded delicious
Melanie B on Jan 28, 2017
I love plants but lately I want to grow fruit but since it gets cold, I'll have them in a pot, I'll see how they due.
Irma M on Dec 2, 2016
I chose this plant not only as a cross pollinator, but because the sound of the fruit made me think of canning my own pie fillings. Super excited to get this planted!

Klaus P on Apr 3, 2017
Is this a plant that requires a pollinator? If so will regular blueberries do the job or do I need certain honeyberries?
Jennifer Yvonne M on Apr 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You should plant at least two different varieties for the best performance. I had planted 3 different varieties, 3 plants each. They all did fantastic with great yields within 2 years. I live in NE
When should these be planted?
Brenda T on Oct 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would plant in the early spring.
What month will it start producing berries and for how long?
Elizabeth J on Aug 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It will start producing in early June.
Which taste better, the Indigo Gem and Indigo Treat or the Blue Velvet and Blue Moon? Would there be advantage if I already have Blue Velvet and Blue Moon to get the Gem and Treat, too?
Laura B on Jul 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello, The Indigo Gem and Indigo Treat have better flavor but they are early bloomers and will not pollinate the Blue Moon or Blue Velvet. If you are looking for another early blooming variety I would recommend finding a Borealis Honeyberry. It has fantastic flavor and will pollinate the Indigos.
