Sunshine Blue Blueberry

Vaccinium x 'Sunshine Blue' (Southern Highbush)

SKU
02174
One of the best for mild-winter areas, a low-chill selection perfect for small gardens or large patio tubs. Blue-green foliage and showy pink to white flowers provide ornamental value, followed by an abundant crop of fruit. Self-fruiting, but yields best when planted with another variety. Recommended winter chill: 150 hours. Deciduous.
