Special Attributes

Bushel and Berry‘Pink Icing™’ Blueberry features attractive, showy, spring foliage in multiple shades of pink that turn to blue and green shades in summer with pink new growth. Then, in fall the leaves turn lavender and in winter to a stunning iridescent turquoise blue. It's juicy, tropical flavored bright-blue berries ripen in mid through late summer. Pink Icing is self-pollinating (self-fertile), so there's no need to plant other blueberry varieties for cross pollination or berry production. That said, pollinators will increase fruit production.

Landscape & Gardens Uses

Growing in a mound to only 3 to 4 feet tall and wide, Pink Icing Blueberry is ideal for use in 16-inch diameter or larger pots, planters and other containers. In the landscape or garden plants are ideal for use as a specimen in smaller spaces, or in groupings or as a low hedge in larger garden spaces. 




Cultural Preferences

Blueberry plants grow best in an acidic (pH of 4.8 to 5.2), organically rich, moist, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. The more sun the better for best berry production. The shallow, fibrous roots of blueberry plants like a consistently moist but well-drained soil which can be provided by with a layer of organic mulch. Although this blueberry is self-fertile, cross-pollination produces the best fruit crop (larger berries and larger yields). Therefore, it is best to plant more than one variety that will bloom at the same time. Blueberry season can be extended by planting early, mid-season and late varieties. Make sure to plant two different cultivars/varieties for each season. USDA Zones: 5a-10b  Find Your Zone >
