I am looking for a place to buy cloudberry plants (Rubus chamaemorus).
This plant is also sometimes called bakeapple. I need information on
any nurseries that currently sell cloudberry plants. Additionally
these nurseries need not reside in the US, but must be able to ship to
the US. Thanks!

Hello mattiashalo,

  Who knew this plant would be so hard to locate?  :-)

I have found three sources, one in the US, one in Canada, and one in
Scotland. The Canadian and Scottish nurseries do appear to ship to the

Rice Creek Gardens Inc.
11506 Highway 65
Blaine, MN 55434


?Rubus chamaemorus -- Rosy flowered, dainty, trailing blackberry.
Plant in humusy soil. Rare arctic plant suitable for tiny nooks with
heather or rhododendrons. 1"x 6" $4.50 USD.?

How to order online

Pacific Rim Native Plant Nursery
PO Box 413 Chilliwack
BC V2P 6J7 Canada 

FAX (604) 792 1891

?Rubus chamaemorus. Cloudberry.  
Pot (4"/ 10 cm). In Canada C$4.00; elsewhere US$3.00.

Shipping to US
?International customers require a phytosanitary certificate to import
plants and bulbs from Canada. A few countries also require a phyto
certificate for seeds.  You are responsible for knowing your country's
import regulations. If you have special requirements, please tell us.
American customers:  
·For US Customs, please provide your Social Security number or a
Federal Tax ID number on your order form.
·Since June, 2002, the United States has required a phyto even for
seeds.  The change in US government policy is explained here.  Again,
we suggest that several people might club together to place a single
order, which would require only one phyto.
How to order (No orders by phone):
·You send us your order by email, fax or post.  
·We fax or email you what is available and how much to pay, shipping
and other costs included.
·You pay for your order.  
·We ship it.  
·Everyone's happy

Plants & bulbs are shipped in February-May and late August-November as
weather and growth permit. On the order form, we ask for your
preferred shipping date. We will do our best to accommodate you, but
we can make no promises.?

their site, they do ship to the US.

CLOUDBERRY  Rubus chamaemorus P  10cm. Native white flowered and
orange berried fruit, for jams, jellies and drinks. Enjoys acidic
moist conditions
Plant - £2.90 ($5.29 USD)
Seeds - £1.60 ($2.92 USD)
Shipping and Contact Information
?Japan, Australia, USA, Switzerland and others with similar
regulations. Minimum order £50 plus air mail post and health
certificate costs. Ask for a quotation?
Some plants may not be available year round.

Additionally, Hartman Nursery, was mentioned on this message board as
being a possible source (I found no nursery in Michigan, but I located
one of the same name in Washington state):
?Also, I have a seed catalogue from Hartman Nursery in Lacota, Mich.
It offers ground cover raspberries. Are you familiar with this plant?
Is it related to Salmon berries or the cloudberries (rubus
chamaemorus) that grow in the South Arctic regions? Would they grow in
North Dakota? (Turtle Lake, N.D.)?

I found no mention of raspberries or cloudberry on the site, but it
may be worth trying to contact them, if the above two sources don?t
work out! (They don?t like to ship, but if you live in the area, or
are good at convincing folks...)

Contact information is at the bottom of the page:

You may try contacting someone on this message board for additional resources!

I hope this information enables you to obtain the plants you are
seeking, and I wish you luck with the cultivation of your cloudberry
