Thank you for your question, Tim. This relatively recent arrival is cold hardy, but has some requirements differing from our more common Lonicera varieties. Generally, here is an Extension article on their care: https://extension.usu.edu/yardandgarden/fruits/haskap I point you to this article as well, especially since it notes that you need a different cultivar that blooms at the same time for cross-pollination: https://digitalcommons.usu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?referer=https://www.bing.com/&httpsredir=1&article=1750&context=extension_curall I hope these are helpful. Good luck!
