Our new 'Plant Index' page lists all the plants we expect to have available for the 2017 shipping season.

On this page, we offer a lot of highly desirable flowering shrubs. If you prefer to purchase small plants over large, full grown specimens (saving money and watching them grow to maturity), check these plants out. Included are some of the most beautiful blooming bushes available to gardeners. Some of these shrubs attract butterflies, hummingbirds, and/or honey bees. 
      We also offer two edible berries near the bottom of the page: Goji Berry (a.k.a. Chinese Wolfberry) and Honeyberry (a.k.a. Haskap and Blueberry Honeysuckle). Available in gourmet and health food stores, Goji berries  and Honeyberries are usually expensive to buy----but both are easy to grow!

Goji Berry, Chinese Wolfberry, Lycium barbarum, edible berries Goji Berry         (Lycium barbarum)

Goji Berry, also known as Chinese Wolfberry and Lifeberry, is a super fruit, a fruit having exceptional nutrition and anticipated health benefits. Packed with antioxidants, it has been used in China for medicinal purposes for centuries. In 2007 Anheuser-Busch introduced the first energy drink made with the exotic Goji Berry to the United States. Among Goji products offered on the market today, you will find dried berries (plain, chocolate coated, and yogurt coated), juice blends, pure juice, dietary supplements, and energy drinks.  
Related to tomatoes, potatoes, chili peppers, and eggplant, Goji Berry is easy to grow. Like its relatives, it should be grown in full sun. Staking is recommended for maximum access to the nutrient-rich fruit, which grows on long, elegantly curving branches. The stake should be about 48" high and approximately  1" wide. The plant produces lavender to purple flowers June thru September. Red berries mature August thru October.  The berries should be left on the plant for about two weeks after turning red. 
A recipe for Goji Breakfast Bars will accompany each order for one or more Goji Berry plants.
