Nannyberry bushes grow wild in Minnesota – typically on the forest edges. They are a really nice treat – tasting a lot like prunes or raisins. They bloom profusely in the spring, offering forage for honey bees and other pollinators. Great for humans and wildlife.
We are growing these in the sand plains of Minnesota (zone 4a) but they are not “sand fans” so we grow them along the forest and lake edge where water is more reliable. They love clay soil.
