Zone 3 - Northern Minnesota - May 10, 2011

Three year old Blue Belle
While the focus of this blog is the Canadian bred haskap from the University of Saskatchewan, we're happy to see any Blue Honeysuckle bearing such pretty flowers! Blue Belle (lonicera kamchatika) sat outside this past winter at Bergeson Nursery with no winter damage and very early blooming. It measures 20" tall, and is expected to reach 3 feet at maturity. Joe Bergeson has been growing several varieties for three or four years in rich Red River Valley soil with good success. Bernis, with thanks to Joe
