A real garden novelty, this unique variety is the result of many years of research and development by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Pink Lemonade brings blueberries to a whole new level – providing year-round colour and interest in the garden. The blush white, bell-shaped flowers provide plenty of spring interest, these are then followed by pale green fruits in the summer which become dappled with pale pink and finally ripen to a deep glossy pink colour. In autumn the leaves turn bright orange, fading to deep red, before falling to reveal an attractive framework of dusky red-brown branches in winter. The fruit is deliciously sweet and has a lovely firm texture.
Eventual height and spread: 1.5m (5ftm). Cropping season: August/September. Self-fertile, but cross pollination will encourage a greater yield.
This product is supplied in a 3L pot.
*Bareroot – November to March is the ideal time to plant bare-root plants. These are plants that have been grown in open ground, then dug up for dispatch and planting during the dormant season. They are called ‘bare-root’ plants as they are supplied with no soil around their roots. They will come packed in damp compost to stop the roots drying out and should be planted as soon as possible. As long as the compost is kept damp planting can be delayed for a few weeks if necessary.
