Blueberry “Sunshine Blue”

Sunshine Blue has it all.

This semi-dwarf, versatile semi-deciduous shrub features showy hot pink flowers that fade to white in spring,with delicious, sweet blue fruit during summer. A wonderful shrub that is easily grown, producing abundant amounts of fruit for eating or use in pies and sauces.

Sunshine Blue tolerates higher pH soils better than many other blueberries and it is self-fertile. It is a Southern Highbush with the low chilling requirement of 150 hours making it suitable for the subtropics, but we find it is surprisingly cold-hardy and a wonderful addition to patios and gardens in cooler areas.Prefers acidic, moist, well drained soil rich in organic matter. Mulch well to conserve soil moisture and suppress weeds.
