Article number: P-13172
Availability: Out of stock

'Koralle Lingonberry' serves double duty as a low growing, evergreen ornamental shrub or groundcover, and as a source of tart red berries that can be made into preserves, syrups, wines, and baked goods. Small dense leaves will take on bronze tones in the winter, and revert to a deep green the rest of the year. This lingonberry can handle full sun and a fair amount of shade, but may produce more fruit in sunnier locations. 'Koralle Lingonberry' reaches about a foot tall, with a reported spread of up to two feet wide, and does well in borders, rock gardens, woodland gardens, large containers and as a ground cover. Birds and bees find the flowers and berries attractive, and deer tend to ignore it.
