Lingonberry: These plants thrive in moist, acidic soils from Massachusetts to Alaska, producing an abundance of healthful, cranberry-like fruits. The lingonberry is a 12- to 18-inch-high evergreen shrub native to northern temperate, boreal and arctic regions of Europe and North America. In addition to inherent cold-hardiness (to -10°), once covered with insulating snow, it survives northern winters from New England to Minnesota. Plants need two to three years to begin bearing good crops.
Mountain Cranberry/Lingonberry - Charming and rarely seen, this refined little glossy evergreen grows only 2-3 inches high with shiny leaves a third of an inch long. Intricate dense clusters of pink bells pop open in spring; Autumn brings edible and nutricious scarlet berries that are quite beautiful.
