Sunshine Blue Blueberry
Vaccinium x 'Sunshine Blue'
If you want a pot of blueberries, this one's for you! This Southern Highbush variety is a unique evergreen selection with attractive year-round foliage and hot pink spring flowers. This mounding bush grows 3-4 feet tall and wide, and produces up to ten pounds of delicious, light blue, medium-sized berries. They ripen over a very long season, starting midseason and finishing late. One of the few highbush blueberries we recommend for growing in pots!
Hardiness to 0 degrees F, a very low chilling requirement of only 150 chilling hours and a tolerance for higher pH soils (up to 5.5 ph), makes this a perfect choice for gardeners in the Pacific Northwest, the South or in California.
