Saw some lingonberry plants at the farmer's market today (yes, the farmer's market opened for the season, hurrah!). I love the fine texture of the leaves and wondered if it would be suitable for a slope in full afternoon sun, acid soil... if well-mulched and watered the first few years, do they adapt to the summer dry soil so future watering could be minimized? I take it, from reading some descriptions, that they spread but are slow-growing.
I'm more interested in the evergreen ornamental quality than the fruit although if I ever got enough to eat (or the birds did), that would be a nice bonus.
Any experience with these? Good possibility, or would I be better off going with other plants?...
