The branches of this plant have a mounding trailing habit, so it can be staked or trellised. The leaves are small and green with purple flowers blooming during summer. They are self-pollinating so only one plant is required. The plants are drought-tolerant and can survive in any well-drained soil. Sweet lifeberry® goji berry is also pest- and disease- resistant.
Goji berries are red and high in antioxidants. Most of the fruiting takes place on the lateral branches and can be encouraged by cutting the branch tips back in the spring. The fruit becomes sweeter when dried. For the best taste, dip them in chocolate!
