  • Latin name: Vaccinium corymbosum 'Powder Blue'
  • Common name: Rabbiteye Blueberry
  • Supplied in 9cm pot
  • Characteristics: A deciduous shrub with deep green foliage and white flowers blooming in Spring and juicy, edible blueberries from mid to late summer.
  • Growth and spread: Can reach an ultimate height of 3m and ultimate spread of 2m over the course of 10-20 years.
  • Period of interest: Dark blue-green leaves are accompanied by an array of white bell-shaped flowers, sometimes flushed with pale pink, in Spring. By mid to late summer, these flowers are replaced by clusters of deep blue, sweet berries.
  • Water and maintenance: Requires planting in moisture-rich, well-drained, acidic soil. Requires a sheltered area, in full sun or partial shade. The soil should be kept moist, and the shrub will benefit from winter protection. The best fruit is achieved when three different cultivars are planted together.

Vaccinium corymbosum 'Powder Blue' is perfect for any garden not only for its edible berries, but also, it’s ornamental value. In Spring, white flowers, sometimes tinged with blush pink, accompany dark blue-green, leathery leaves. By mid to late summer, these flowers will be replaced by clusters of up to 50 sweet, antioxidant-rich blueberries.

Growing to an ultimate height of 3m and ultimate spread of 2m, Vaccinium corymbosum 'Powder Blue' is a worthy addition to any garden. It’s blue-green Spring and Summer foliage turns to a fiery orange or yellow in the Autumn months, providing an array of different colours throughout the year. Its beautifully sweet blueberries are perfect for using in pancakes, pies, jams and more as well as eating on their own, straight from the plant.
