Arctic Raspberries (Rubus arcticus x stellarcticus) are a low growing groundcover developed in Sweden. They only grow 3” to 5” tall and make a dense mat of bright green leaves and NO THORNS. In late spring, pinkish lavender flowers appear, followed by sweet, red raspberry fruits by mid-summer. Each plant can produce up to one pound of ripe berries. The Fall color is amazing as the foliage changes to crimson and burgundy. In winter, the plants die back but they regrow in the spring.
Hardy in zones 1-7

Each plant will be labeled with the name so you will know the varieties you are receiving. Plants shipped in the spring will arrive dormant with no or minimal visible growth. They will break dormancy as the weather warms up (see photos above).
