Vaccinium 'Tophat' Blueberry

Item #40237


Fruit ripens early to midsummer | Small enough for bonsai, with pea-sized berries

A dwarf variety, just 2 feet tall and 1 ½ feet wide at full maturity, Vaccinium 'Tophat' Blueberry is an exciting cultivar that bears masses of pea-sized berries in early and midsummer. Unlike many blueberries, the white blooms that precede the fruit are quite ornamental—and, at ½-inch across, comparatively huge on the tiny plant.

The sky-blue berries of Vaccinium 'Tophat' Blueberry are 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 for bonsai.

Supremely heat-tolerant half-high, Vaccinium 'Tophat' Blueberry is a cross of a highbush (V. 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. Vaccinium 'Tophat' Blueberry is self-fertile, but bigger crops arise if more than one is planted in the same area.
