Product Details

Semi-dwarf evergreen plants grow just 3-4' with lustrous foliage and showy hot pink blooms. Sweet, medium-size berries begin to ripen in late June with a very long fruiting period. Sunshine Blue needs less cold weather than many blueberries to produce fruit. It can be grown far into the South, but the plant is cold hardy to zone 5. It also tolerates lower acid soil than most. Zones 5-10. Ships in a 3.5" pot.

  • Spread: 3 - 4 feet.
  • Sun/Shade: Full sun to partial shade.
  • Soil Preference: Heavy and loose soils. Tolerates lower acidic soil than most blueberries.
  • Pruning: Mature blueberry bushes should be pruned lightly, but not until they are three years old. Once they have reached three years, you should begin pruning early in the Spring every year. Just remove some of the oldest branches, and snip off any very weak looking twigs. Then you can trim all of the remaining stems by 1/3. Removing a third of the branches forces new growth, and new growth bears the most fruit.

  • Blooms: Spring.

  • Size: 1/4 - 1/2 inch blossoms.
  • Comments: Sunshine Blue has it all. This semi-dwarf, versatile evergreen blueberry features showy hot-pink flowers that fade to white in Spring, yielding large crops of delicious berries. Sunshine Blue tolerates higher pH soils better than many other blueberries and it is self-pollinizing. The low chilling requirement of 150 hours makes it suitable for warmer climates, but we find it is surprisingly cold-hardy and a wonderful addition to any garden. Excellent ornamental variety. Sweet medium sized berries.Unable to ship to: AE, AK, CA, GA, GU, HI, MI, OR, PR, WA.
