Sea Buckthorn
Wyoming Raspberry

Sea Buckthorn is a nitrogen fixing shrub that produces attractive berries high in vitamin C.

While we can't confirm claims that the berries are effective in treating various ailments, many people believe consuming the berries helps with arthritis, infections, and asthma, among other things.

Sea Buckthorn plants have attractive pale silvery-green leaves, dense branches, and large thorns, people like to grow in ornamental hedges or as a first row in a shelterbelt.

Note: these plants typically reach maturity and make their sex easily known (females producing fruit) in their 3rd or 4th year of growth. Our seedlings are too young to identify their sex.

Wyoming Raspberry is a blackberry/raspberry hybrid. It is a vigorous grower, with floricane canes reaching up to 8 feet, which you must support if they are heavily laden with fruit.

The fruit is a deep purple to black drupe, with a flavour between blackberry and raspberry.

It is more cold hardy than other black raspberry cultivars, suitable to cold hardiness zone 3a. Wyoming Black Raspberry is non-suckering, making it suitable for the small home garden.

The Wyoming Raspberry is a fast-growing floricane. This means that raspberries will not grow on canes the year they first grow. The mature canes they do grow on, however, produce more berries than primocane varieties.
