Lonicera caerulea 'Dolce Vita'

Sugar Mountain® Blue Sweetberry

PP#26,617
Reminiscent of raspberries and blueberries; bigger, tastier berries on an easy to grow hedge. Plant two selections for even heavier fruit crops. Flowers on old wood, so prune after harvest. Plants should not be pruned until they have been in-ground at least 3 years. Trim stem tips to encourage lateral branching. Older plants may be renewed (remove up to 25% of stems) in late winter.
