Call it the "ultimate edible ornamental!" A dense, rounded, semi-dwarf form only 3- to 4-feet high and wide, 'Sunshine Blue' seems just about perfect -- especially for blueberry lovers! Beautiful, glossy silvery-green leaves can be planted anywhere. In spring, enjoy a proliferation of pink flowers followed by yes, sumptuous blackberries!

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.

The joy continues after the berries are gone as 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 exceptionally easy�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. Cannot ship to CA, MI, OR, WA.
