‘Czech 17’ HoneyberryLonicera caerulea var. kamtschatica 6-8' Also called Berry Blue (which is how we offered it last season) or Berry Smart Blue. Recommended pollinator for Indigo Gem, Tundra and Borealis (which we’ve offered in the past), will pollinate up to 8 plants.
Introduced from the Czech Republic, Czech 17 has a different parentage from Tundra and Indigo Gem, which helps with pollination. Tart, but not too tart, the berries are plentiful, though smaller and less tasty than the varieties it pollinates. Good fresh or processed. Needs another honeyberry as a pollinator. Compared to other types it is quite ornamental, with lush green foliage and attractive upright pinkish-purple stems. Each leaf node is highlighted by vibrant coral-colored buds and stipules. Maine Grown. Z2. (well-rooted transplants)
