At only 3 feet, a container blueberry with hot pink flowers.
Sunshine Blue is a cold-hardy variety that requires only 150 chill hours and is adapted for vigorous, productive growth from San Diego in Southern California to Seattle in the Northwest. Berries are richly sweet and medium-sized and ripen mid to late season. Its upright, compact habit and blue-green foliage that turns burgundy in fall make Sunshine Blue especially decorative in pots. Tolerates high pH better than most blueberries and is self-pollinating.
Plant blueberry plants in a sunny to partially shaded area, in a well-drained, very acidic soil, with a pH of 4.2-5.2. Plant at least two different varieties for cross pollination. Set blueberry plants 4-8 feet apart (3 feet apart for hedges).
As fruit ripens, cover blueberry plants with netting to deter birds. Pick fruit promptly to discourage insects.
