Up to 20 Pounds of Berries!

This Northern Highbush is beautiful and dependable.
Generous yields every time are the hallmark of Blue Ray, a superb Northern HIghbush with attractive pink flowers and colorful fall foliage as well as extra-large berries. Give it a try in your zone 4-7 garden this season!

Blue Ray can be depended upon to yield about 20 pounds of blueberries every summer -- an astonishing production for any blueberry! Very cold-tolerant, it's a great choice for climates north of the Carolinas, fruiting most heavily in midsummer.

In addition to its sweet and juicy flavor, Blue Ray's berries are known for their resistance to cracking. This makes the shrub a great choice for gardeners who are too busy to harvest promptly!

The show begins in mid-spring for Blue Ray, when unusual rosy-pink blooms cover the shrub. Summer brings the berries, and then in autumn the foliage turns crimson and scarlet, absolutely showstopping before it drops for winter. Talk about multi-season interest!

Blue Ray reaches 4 to 6 feet high and 2 to 3 feet wide, with an upright, well-branched habit. In autumn, the foliage turns a brilliant shade of scarlet, adding another season to this plant's glory! Content in full sun to part shade and acidic soil (culture it as you would an Azalea), Blue Ray is great in the border, as a hedge, or in mass plantings. Enjoy this ultra heavy-fruiting, cold-hardy Northern Highbush for many years to come! Zones 4-7.
