Bearberry
Aurora Haskap

Bearberry is a dwarf shrub known for its creamy pink flowers and red edible fruits.

It is great as a filler in gardens and flowerbeds in place of invasive ground cover plants, like English Ivy.

Bearberry will attract hummingbirds, butterflies and bees to your property.

Aurora Haskap produces great tasting berries. Their taste is a cross between raspberry and blueberry. The berries can be used for eating fresh, baking, jams and jellies, freezing. The haskap berries are high in vitamins, fibre, and anti-oxidants.

Aurora is a pollinator variety that causes other varieties to have a higher yield when planted together. Borealis and Aurora have similar taste but differ in the size and shape of the fruit. Aurora is a great companion variety for the Borealis.
