Grow these plants in patio pots for decoration on your porch or balcony. Or, grow them as a marvelous low edging plant in your foundation plantings or mixed borders with slightly acidic soil.

Make sure to place them in a high-profile spot, as people will want to examine the highlights of red-tipped, elongated green leaves. This charming plant amazes garden visitors each time they come over.

Imagine treating yourself to ripe, mid-season blueberries from your backyard! Jelly Bean Blueberry fruit is a sweet treat with aromatic flavors and antioxidants.

Just be sure to plant them in well-drained, acidic soil with a pH between 4.5 and 5.5; or keep them in containers if you have alkaline soil. Read our Garden Blog for more info on growing Blueberry plants.
