Labrador Tea is slow-growing evergreen shrub native to the boreal forests of Canada.

It thrives in wet, swampy conditions.

Labrador Tea has narrow, leathery, dark green leaves, topped by a cluster of white flowers in the spring. It is a perfect ornamental shrub for boggy, wet areas of your property.

Blue Treasure Haskap is a late season cultivar, ideal for cooler climates, and a favorite from Berries Unlimited. The berries are delectably sweet and ideal for fresh eating, but can also be made into jam, juice, and wine.

Pair this variety with Strawberry Sensation or Boreal Blizzard Haskap to ensure cross pollination and fruit production occurs. Expect to see high yields in the fourth or fifth year of growth.
