The Sweet Lifeberry Goji Berry is a fruit bearing shrub that has small red berries from mid summer to the fall. The botanical name is Lycium barbarum 'SMNDSL'. The Sweet 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 Sweet Lifeberry Goji Berry will also attract birds & many other pollinator when in bloom! It also attracts birds which will eat the berries if you do not want to harvest them.

In garden planters, use this in the thriller role. Those are plants with drama and that add height or a vertical element to the combination. These are typically in the center or the back of the container. This plant not only looks great in the garden, it is also an edible herb, which can be used in small amounts to provide extra flavor to food. The Sweet Lifeberry Goji Berry typically grows 10-12 feet tall, and 5-7 feet wide. For best plant health and results, space these plants 5-7 feet apart, center on center. And also plant in a location with full sunlight conditions (over 6 hours per day). The growth habit is mounded & trailing. The Sweet Lifeberry Goji Berry is winter hardy & summer tolerant in growing zones 5a, 5b, 6a, 6b, 7a, 7b, 8a, 8b.

    I planted this in my berry garden this spring. I like how the berries taste, and the plant produces a lot of the berries. But it takes a long time to pick all of them.
