Great for the South, and hardy as far north as Chicago!

Self-pollinating, it's so easy to grow, and the foliage is semi-evergreen!

This Blueberry has so many excellent qualities that it's almost a new kind of plant -- the ultimate edible ornamental! It has a dense, rounded, semi-dwarf form only 3- to 4-feet high and wide, making it a great choice for containers. The glossy silvery-green leaves are semi-evergreen, so you can plant it anywhere for year-round color! In spring, masses of pink flowers (instead of the white typical of Blueberries!) grace the lovely branches, followed by berries ... LOTS of berries!

Each petite plant bears anywhere from 5 to 10 pounds of the most delicious, dime-sized, dark blue berries you will ever taste! The flavor is sweet and juicy, totally unlike the berries you buy long after harvest at the grocery store. Wait until you discover the joy of fresh blueberries, straight from the patio!

And just when you think this delightful shrub can't get any better, its gorgeous purple-red fall color appears! Self-pollinating (so you need only grow one plant) and more tolerant than most of high pH, 'Sunshine Blue' is an exceptionally easy berry to grow. It's a southern highbush type with a low chill requirement -- only 150 hours! -- which means it's great for the south. However, it's very hardy as far north as Chicago, too!

Best in full sun and slightly acidic, well-drained soil rich in organic matter. Zones 5-9.
