Zone 6b - New Jersey - April 16, 2011

1 year old Tundra, blossoms forming

Blue Velvet, blossoming

Blue Moon, leafing out
  Matt Catania sent in some great pics of his honeyberry plants on April 15 & 16, 2011. Tundra was forming blossoms. Blue Velvet was blossoming. It had spent the winter outside at a local greenhouse. The Blue Moon is the suggested companion pollenizer to Blue Velvet, but no blossoms were forming yet. It spent the winter outside at Matt's place. Blue Velvet and Blue Moon are supposed to be late blossoming honeyberries, so will be interesting to see what happens next year when the two plants are wintered over in identical environments. Photo tip: the white background is simply a piece of white cardboard held up behind the plants!
