The Red Candy Lingonberry is a wonderful and unique berry bush that is hardy even in zone 2. Popular with native and ethnic peoples around the Arctic, it is also a beautiful groundcover shrub resembling a cotoneaster. It has glossy foliage, a low, mounding form, white flowers and beautiful candy-red berries. These make delicious tangy juices, jams and pies. Easy to grow in suitable soil it is perfect for covering banks and slopes, planting among rocks and growing in damp soils.

  • Beautiful groundcover with clusters of white flowers
  • Large red berries are beautiful, and great for juices, jams and pies
  • Attractive evergreen leaves like cotoneaster
  • Vigorous, giving a big harvest
  • Prefers moist, acidic soils

The Red Candy Lingonberry is hardy in zone 2, preferring areas with cooler, damp summers. It grows best in moist to wet soils that are peaty and acidic, but it can be grown in neutral soils with peat added and regular watering. It doesn’t have any pests or diseases, needs no special pruning or pollination partners, and is very easy to grow in suitable conditions.
