Just 2 feet tall and 1½ feet wide at full maturity, this exciting dwarf blueberry bears masses of pea-shaped berries in early and midsummer. Unlike many varieties, the white blooms in spring are beautiful -- and, at ½-inch across, very large on the tiny plant! The berries are sky-blue and delectable, and the light green foliage remains fresh over a very long season. The perfect container plant for the sunny patio, it is also a distinctive choice for the front of the border or even as bonsai!
Supremely heat-tolerant, Tophat is a cross of a Highbush (Vaccinium corymbosum) and a Lowbush (V. angustifolium). This is the blueberry to plant where others have melted out in the heat -- yet it is hardy all the way through zone 3. Delightful in big pots on the patio, Tophat is a miniature garden joy!
Plant in full sun to light shade in acidic, well-drained soil. Tophat is self-fertile, but bigger crops arise if more than one is planted in the same area. Cannot ship to CA, OR, WA, MI.
