Cold Hardy Ground Cover With Delicious Berries

Lingonberries are favored all over the world for their aesthetic appeal as a beautiful ground cover plant perfect for framing gardens. Also, the berries are delectable and sweet, yet tart.

Often described as the American Cranberry’s sweeter and juicier cousin, Lingonberries have a rich berry flavor similar to raspberries and cranberries with an irresistible sour zing. In other countries Lingonberries greatly outweigh the use of cranberries during traditional holiday meals. 

They’re extremely popular to use in jams, muffins and scones, because people can’t get enough of their unique berry flavor. By snacking on them fresh or adding them to cereal or yogurt you’ll be adding an irresistible sweet and sour berry flavor to your favorite recipes, as well as tons of nutrients. 

Each Lingonberry is packed with Vitamin A, Vitamin C, B vitamins, Calcium, Potassium and more to give your immune system a boost, and to fill you with energy. A handful of berries are all it takes to fill your favorite recipes with flavor and nutrition.

You will never run out of Lingonberries because they have two harvests, one in the midsummer and a second in the early fall. Simply step outside and pick the vibrant red berries from your attractive ground cover plant 

Ice, snow, poor soil, droughts and more can’t stop the tough and low maintenance Lingonberry from pumping out fruit and beauty. It will grow almost anywhere in the country and can survive freezing temperatures down to -40 degrees. 

By only growing about 1 to 2 feet tall, and 1 to 2 feet wide Lingonberries are perfect for framing porches and flowerbeds. They accent your yard without taking over. Their dark glossy leaves serve as a lush backdrop for brightly colored flowers to pop against.

Lingonberries even have vibrant whitish-pink bell shaped blossoms that pop against their dark foliage. Once you see the beautiful flowers you will be filled with awe from their beauty, and excitement because soon bright red berries will be on their way. 

Lingonberry Pollination

Lingonberry are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Lingonberry will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Lingonberry

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Lingonberry .

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 Lingonberry 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 Lingonberry again after the transplant is complete.

Finishing a backyard and prefer having plants looking nice and make use of the fruit.

I am Swedish and nobody in the neighborhood knows what lingonberries are. You can buy lingonberry jam and juice at Ikea,
but who wants to do that? My mom always made jam from lingonberries, so I will continue the tradition.

Do you need 2 plants ?
