Special Attributes

A semi-dwarf Blueberry growing to only 3 to 4 feet tall and equally as wide, Sunshine Blue is ideal for use in pots and smaller garden spaces. What's more, it's self-pollinating, which means you only need one plant to produce pounds of tasty blueberries! The glossy silvery-green leaves are semi-evergreen and turn to a vivid purple-red in fall, making it a fine selection for use as an ornamental in the edible landscape. In spring, masses of pink flowers are followed by lots of tasty, blueberries. Each established and mature 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!

Suggested Spacing: 2.5 to 3 feet apart for hedges; 6 feet or more apart for space between plants




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
