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 -30 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™s 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...
