Powder Blue Blueberry
Resistant to Late Freezes
Powder Blue Blueberry, Vaccinium ashei 'Powder Blue', is a deciduous shrub that produces delicious, healthy fruit. Plant several for an eye-catching hedge along your home, or even just one to partake of its amazing fruit.
Your Powder Blue Blueberry will produce delicate white flowers in late spring/early summer. This is especially wonderful, not just for its beauty but because a late bloom helps protect your blueberry bush from late freezes. Ripening mid to late season, the berries are large and light blue.
The effect of the clusters (of 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. Blueberries are also known overall for their health benefits, filled with vitamins and antioxidants among other beneficial attributes.
Powder Blue Blueberry is a deciduous shrub with an upright nature and is quite hardy overall. Powder Blue will adapt to a variety of soil types and is generally long lived. Cross-pollination will give you the best crop, so plant it with other blueberry bushes for optimal performance.
Powder Blue Blueberry is not only delicious and lovely, but will even avoid being damaged by late freezes. It's an exceptional blueberry variety to be sure, and one you won't want to miss this year!

- Mid to late season fruit
