Performing well in warm areas, as well as surviving temperatures as cold as –45°F, Northsky is a treat in many different gardens. You also don't need tons of room for this one. It grows about 1 1/2' tall and 2' wide, so you can grow it in small gardens and even patio pots. The little berries are tasty, with that rich flavor you'd normally only get on wild blueberries. Great conversation starter–whether you're decorating hors d'oeuvres platters with the fruit, or enjoying the ornamental qualities of Northsky bush. It produces snow–white blooms for spring, the eye–catching blueberries are ripe in july and the foliage turns bright red by fall. Northsky Blueberry is shipping now, growing in a 1–gallon pot.
