Cranberry - High Bush Windmill
This multi-stemmed bush( 9 ft) can take poor soil conditions and its fibrous root system prevents erosion and stabilizes slopes. Massive white flower heads in spring later turn into giant clusters of edible red berries that will hang on the branches all winter. What our grandmothers used to make cranberry jelly with an incredible, intense fruity flavour that "knocks your socks off". For those who have trouble growing anything( no green thumb) this is the plant for you...will grow anywhere....winter or drought or rain or insects or disease or you..... will have trouble killing it....natures "bomb -proof" plant! SELF POLLINATING ....Zone 1-2 hardiness...seems to love -40 C temps in winter.
