The ‘Northland’ variety has been hybridized to adapt to the very northern climates of our country. ‘Northland’ has flexible branches which do not break under heavy snow loads and adapts well to the sub-zero climate. Fruit is borne on long and loose clusters. The quality of the fruit is moderately firm and has a nice wild berry flavor. This is also a great ornamental bush. A low stature and spreading growth habit also makes it an attractive landscape plant. Flowers provide nectar for native bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. The fruit is also loved by birds and other wildlife. Set plants out as early as possible in the spring. Prune branches back about 1/2 their length at planting time with no further pruning required the next 3 years. Prune annually thereafter during the dormant period.
