I live in Zone 4 (Whitefish, MT) and Ocean Spray grows very well here. It is a Montana native bush and easily survives very cold temperatures. We had three instances of minus 20 and below last winter and the Ocean Sprays came thru with flying colors!!

Neutral mystic On Aug 18, 2001, mystic from Ewing, KY (Zone 6a) wrote:
