Here is a picture of one of my 3 happy Borealis plants. It was quite miserable-looking after the drought last year, (see below) but it seems to have shrugged that stress off just fine. The Honey Bee was shipped late last year after it had broken dormancy. The shipping stress and the drought both likely contributed to its demise. Fred, IA (May 7, 2013)
Sept. 14, 2012: My 4 happy honeyberries have taken a turn for the worse. I believe they have leaf scorch caused by extended drought here in the Midwest (I am in Iowa City). Despite watering every 7-10 days, I think the months of zero rain and 90-100 degree weather was too much for them.
Please see the attached pictures. The leaves are dropping, but small new green leaves are emerging from branch tips. I do not know if they will survive. (to find out if they survived or not, see April 25, 2014 entry)
