Vaccinium angustifolium x V. corymbosum 'Top Hat'
Good things do come in small packages! Top Hat is crafty little cross between northern lowbush and highbush families, and it "tops out" at only 1.5 - 2 feet tall! Great for small spaces and under taller bushes. The smaller, light blue berries ripen mid-summer, and the vivid orange and red leaf color really puts on a show!
Needs approximately 800 chill hours to ripen fruit. Prefers regularly moist, highly acidic soils with lots of organic matter in them. Will ripen fruit in part shade, but fruit is not as sweet as full sun locations.
