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.

The Blue Stuart Haskap is a fruit-bearing shrub that produces medium-sized, oval-shaped and sweet berries. Their taste is typically described as something between a raspberry and a blueberry. The berries are ready for harvest through June and July, and are of medium firmness.

The Blue Stuart Haskap, or Blue Stuart Honeyberry is a cultivar of Russian origin bred by Lidia Stuart who grew up in far eastern Russia.

Blue Stuart is a late pollinating variety. Pair with other late pollinators to have a higher yield.
Blue Banana is a great companion variety.
