Blueberry Tophat

Blueberry 'Tophat'

Small Enough for Bonsai, with Yummy Pea-Sized Berries!

Item # 40237

Sold Out

Just 2 feet tall and 1 1/2 feet wide at full maturity, this exciting cultivar bears masses of pea-shaped berries in early and midsummer. Unlike many Blueberries, the white blooms that precede the fruit are quite ornamental -- and, at 1/2-inch across, comparatively huge 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.
