Ripens:  Mid-Late season



Special Attributes

Sunshine Blue is a new dwarf selection that does not require a pollinator! But the great attributes don't stop there. Growing to only 3- to 4-feet high and wide makes Sunshine Blue an ideal selection for smaller garden spaces and containers, which can be set on patios, porches or decks for easy picking. The glossy silvery-green leaves are semi-evergreen and turn to a vidi purple-red in fall. In spring, masses of pink flowers (instead of the white typical of Blueberries) are followed by lots of tasty, blueberries. Each established plant produces from 5 to 10 pounds of delicious, sweet and juicy, dime-size, dark blueberries. 

Because it's self-pollinating, which means you only need one plant, and more tolerant than most of high pH, Sunshine Blue Dwarf Blueberry is an exceptionally easy plant to grow. It's a southern highbush type requiring only 150 chill hours so is perfect for the South. That being said, it's hardy as far north as Chicago and New York!




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 blueberries are 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: 7b-10b  Find Your Zone >
