Popular for many years now, Vaccinium 'Sunshine Blue' Dwarf Blueberry has simply never been bettered as an ornamental edible. This southern highbush blueberry has a new look for every season, and the mass of sweet berries it produces in early to midsummer (June) is only the start of the story.

Spring begins with unusual pink blooms (most blueberry shrubs offer white) and glossy foliage on dense, rounded plants, just 3 to 4 feet high and wide. Perfect for containers, Vaccinium 'Sunshine Blue' Dwarf Blueberry is well-branched and full. When summer arrives, so do the berries—5 to 10 pounds from a single mature plant. And fall brings beautiful foliage changes, as red and purple mark the bright green of these semi-evergreen leaves.

Vaccinium 'Sunshine Blue' Dwarf Blueberry is self-pollinating (no second blueberry shrub is necessary) and very adaptable to a wide range of conditions, from the frigid winters of Chicago to the sweltering summers of Atlanta. It has a low chill requirement, making it a great choice for the South and West, but it is also very hardy in cold weather. Give it fresh potting soil each spring if growing in containers, keep it watered and fed, and Vaccinium 'Sunshine Blue' Dwarf Blueberry will reward you for many seasons to come.
