Arctic Raspberry - Anna 2 1/2" pot

$4.95

Out of stock

These super-hardy Swedish selections are possibly the most uncommon members of the whole Raspberry clan. The low growing, thornless plants spread by root rhizomes, forming a thick mat of bright green trifoliate leaves, no more than 15cm (6") tall. By late spring the carpet is adorned with small, pinkish blossoms followed by dainty, delicious and aromatic red raspberries in mid summer. The fall foliage is a feast for the eyes with shades of crimson and burgundy. In early spring the plants bounce back from the roots.
We offer several of Dr. Gunny Larssen's favourites, selected on the basis of plant vigour as well as fruit quality, quantity and flavour. Although practically identical, two varieties are needed for pollination. Plant 30-60cm (1-2') apart in a well-drained, sunny spot. (Rubus arcticus L subsp. x stellarcticus)

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
