The most versatile shrub on the market!

Well, let’s get this bit of business out of the way right off the bat. Japanese Blueberry Tree (Elaeocarpus decipens) doesn’t grow blueberries. It does grow small blue-colored, olive-shaped fruit, but they taste terrible. Birds, on the other hand, flock to these berries like you’ve just planted a shrub full of bird-candy.

What Japanese Blueberry Tree does have for you, though, is the ability to morph into just about any shape you need it to take. This heat-loving tropical (zone 8-10) is a tightly-branched shrub that handles pruning like a champ.

Do you want an impenetrable wall of green around your yard to screen your neighbors? Japanese Blueberry Tree.

Do you want a low evergreen hedge behind your perennial border? Japanese Blueberry Tree.

Do you want a handsome trunk with a cloud of foliage on top? Japanese Blueberry Tree.

Do you want a topiary of a duck riding on the back of a dolphin captaining a pirate ship? Japanese Blueberry Tree.

Maybe not that last one. That’d be pretty difficult to do.

But, everything else is a cinch for this great plant! Pendulous, bell-shaped flowers in the spring, bird-attracting fruit, glossy evergreen leaves – this is truly a landscapers dream (which is why Landscape Designers all over the south and southwest love putting this in their designs!)

You’ll love it too, but make sure to order yours soon because supplies are limited. (Don’t live in a warm place? Japanese Blueberry Trees are great patio plants in pots on the porch or patio!)

* Beautiful evergreen in zone 8-10
* Scented flowers in spring
* Easily trained to just about any shape
* Great on the coast. Not fazed by wind and salt.
* Good security hedge
