Sunshine Blue Southern Highbush Blueberry

Description
It has medium-sized, light blue berries with a wonderfully addicting, spritely flavor. Semi-dwarf matures at less than 3' tall, making it a perfect landscape plant. Tolerates a higher soil pH than most others. Showy, hot pink flowers fade to white and yield large crops. Evergreen foliage. Ripens late season. Zones 5 - 10.

  • FruitMedium fruit size, sweet flavor, dark blue berries.
  • Soil RequirementsHeavy and loose soils. Tolerates lower acidic soil than most blueberries.
  • Growth RateModerate growth rate.
  • PruningMature blueberry bushes should be pruned lightly, but not until they are three years old. Once they have reached three years, you should begin pruning early in the Spring every year. Just remove some of the oldest branches, and snip off any very weak looking twigs. Then you can trim all of the remaining stems by 1/3. Removing a third of the branches forces new growth, and new growth bears the most fruit.
  • PollinatorSelf pollinating, but will have better yields when planted with other blueberry varieties.
  • CommentsSunshine Blue has it all. This semi-dwarf, versatile evergreen blueberry features showy hot-pink flowers that fade to white in Spring, yielding large crops of delicious berries. Sunshine Blue tolerates higher pH soils better than many other blueberries and it is self-pollinizing. The low chilling requirement of 150 hours makes it suitable for warmer climates, but we find it is surprisingly cold-hardy and a wonderful addition to any garden. Excellent ornamental variety. Sweet medium sized berries.
  • YieldMedium yield.
  • Botanical NameVaccinium corymbosum 'Sunshine Blue'; Family: Ericaceae
  • Size1/4 - 1/2 inch blossoms.
  • DepthPlant at the same depth as in the nursery.
