The Big Lifeberry Goji Berry is a goji berry shrub that produces the largest goji berries available. It has small purple flowers that start in early summer and eventually turn into the berries. It also does not require a pollinator, which is very nice for gardens with limited space. The botanical name is Lycium barbarum 'SMNDBL'. The Big Lifeberry Goji Berry is deciduous, meaning that the leaves fall off each winter, and come back in the spring. There are purple colored flowers that bloom during summer. The flowers bloom on new wood, which mean the flower buds are grown on branches that are part of the new growth of the plant. The Big Lifeberry Goji Berry will also attract birds & many other pollinator when in bloom!
