The Powder Blue Blueberry (Vaccinium ashei 'Powder Blue') is a deciduous shrub that produces delicious, healthy fruit! Plant several for an eye-catching flowering ornamental edible hedge along your home's foundation, or even just a couple of varieties to partake in its amazing healthy, antioxidant-rich fruit!
Powder Blue produces delicate white flowers in late spring-early summer and this is especially helpful, not just for its beauty but because a late bloom helps protect your Blueberry from late freezes. Ripening mid to late season, the berries are large and light blue!
The effect of the clusters up to 50 of pretty berries against the green foliage is enchanting, only contributed to by the powdered look of the berries, as if sprinkled with fairy dust as they await the excitement of the harvest. Foliage hues of red and yellow in fall round out the ornamental display of this exceptional blueberry bush.
Powder Blue Blueberry is a rabbiteye type, so named because the berries are pink before transitioning to their ripe blue. Rabbiteye Blueberries are known for being sweeter, hardier and have a tendency to freeze better and also known for their health benefits, vitamins and antioxidants among other beneficial attributes!
Powder Blue Blueberry is a deciduous shrub with an upright nature and is quite hardy overall. Cross-pollination will give you the best crop, so plant it with other Blueberry Bushes for optimal performance. Plant groups and rows in orchards of other Rabbiteye varieties to enjoy a huge harvest all growing season long! Prune small for space-saving containers.
Powder Blue will adapt to a variety of soil types and is generally long-lived. Adapted to hot climates, Blueberry bushes are easy to care for! Provide a full sun location and adequate moisture. Plant them in a well-drained, slightly acidic environment with a thick layer of mulch over the root zone.
Powder Blue Blueberry is not only delicious and lovely flowering ornamentals! Order your own today at NatureHills.com! It's an exceptional variety to be sure, and one you won't want to miss this year!
