A pink blueberry! Here's a sweet treat to delight both the eye and the palate. The delicious berries add sweetness and delectable color to desserts. Bred by the USDA, this beautiful fruiting shrub serves as an attractive ornamental with white-pink flowers in spring and crisp red-orange foliage in autumn. Pink Lemonade is self-pollinating, and berries ripen mid- to late season .
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.
