OTHER: These low growing hardy plants bear delicious edible fruit called Cloudberries. They are considered a delicacy, & are very difficult to find at the market, & are very expensive when they can be found, so this is an excellent choice to grow for yourself. The fruit is similar in size & shape to a raspberry, & is high in Vitamin C. The amber colored berries are sweet, soft, & juicy. Enjoy them fresh, in jams, or make "bakeapple pie" or "Eskimo ice cream". Cloudberries are popular in The Nordic countries & are used in a wide variety of sweets, deserts, & liquors. The berries also store well, & can be preserved in their own juice or frozen.
The Cloudberry is native to cool moist areas ranging from arctic, alpine, wet meadows, & tundras. The plants are able to tolerate extremely cold conditions, all the way down to -40F! (Yes, MINUS 40!) It is dioecious, so both male & female plants are needed for the pollination. The pretty 1" white flowers can sometimes have red tips on the petals, & will be visited by bees including bumble bees. It is also a butterfly host plant, & birds & other small critters will enjoy any berries you might accidentally leave behind!

The seeds did not grow at all. The little wildflower seeds that came with it did, but those quickly died. Quite disappointed :/
