Dear Nigel,

That's funny, I ordered Vaccinium
oxycoccus (syn. Oxycoccus palustris)
some time ago for my bog garden, but
received a cranberry cultivar (Vaccinium
macrocarpon/Oxycoccus macrocarpus) named
'Pilgrim'. I checked my plant finder,
and saw that there are some more
cultivars of this species.
By the way, does anybody have
seed/plants of the real Oxycoccus
palustris/Vaccinium oxycoccus for me?

Kind regards,

Martin Zevenbergen
