Purple Leaf Sand Cherry
Strawberry Sensation Haskap (Honeyberry)

Purple Leaf Sand Cherry provides bright reddish-purple leaves that turn bronze-green in the fall. In the spring, tiny flowers with a pinkish white hue bloom. The flowers are small, but the impact comes from the shrub blossoming all at once.

The Purple leaf sand cherry can be susceptible to pests and diseases in more humid areas; a typical life span is approximately 15 years. Not suitable for a privacy hedge on its own but is often alternated with lilacs. Often used as an accent plant that attracts birds and bees.

Strawberry Sensation Haskap is a new cultivar from Berries Unlimited that is getting lots of attention. These haskaps have a unique flavor that range from sweet to tart with an alpine strawberry after taste. This highly productive shrub produces haskaps late season and are ideal for freezing or fresh eating.

Haskaps benefit from an additional pollinator of a different variety to produce higher fruit yields. Strawberry Sensation Haskap will pair with Blue Treasure or Boreal Blizzard Haskap. Expect to see good yields in the fourth or fifth year of growth.
