Vaccinium x Sunshine Blue - Southern Highbush Blueberry

Vaccinium x 'Sunshine Blue'

Blueberry - Highbush (Southern)

'Sunshine Blue' Southern Highbush Blueberry offers great possibilities as a landscape plant in addition to its fruit producing qualities.  The glaucous blue foliage emerges in spring in shades of bronze and ends up in fall in shades of red and burgundy.  The drooping racemes of delicate soft pink bell like flowers appear in May, and are followed in June and July by glaucous blue edible fruit (birds will clean them out if you do not net your plants).  'Sunshine Blue' is self fertile so it does not need a pollinator.
