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.

Love this blueberry

Very prolific. The medium-sized fruits taste like a blueberry should; reminiscent of a wild blueberry. Bush is neat and compact, very attractive year-round.

All around favorite

My seven "sunshine blues" have been flourishing under a pine tree in my front yard for 7 or 8 years, with no additional care or fertilizer, under high, bright shade. The pink flowers are very pretty in spring in spring, the berries and foliage are beautiful in summer, and the little leaves turn bright red in the fall. The bushes have kept an attractive, regular shape, and bear an abundance of berries for us for 4-5 weeks in the summer. Over the years they have been admired and inquired after by anyone with the slightest experience in gardening. Even professional landscapers have noticed how unusual this variety is. I've recommended this specific blueberry bush to many many people, and have heard similar good reviews. I have a variety of native and non-native fruiting and flowering plants in my yard - this has been a great one.

Awesome plant!

bought 3 of these about 4 yrs ago. Planted them right beside my house. They are a very nice looking bush year round in south carolina (have pruned very little). Pretty much I just planted them and let them be, no special attention has been given them as far as watering or disease or bug prevention and only the once a yr fertilizer toss. Tons of berries. My mom had bought a few bushes from the local farm fresh market that were supposed to grow well in this area and they did so poorly that she is now purchasing theses, because she has seen how well they have grown, how good they look ornamentally and how much they produce. One of the best plant purchases I have ever made.
