Vigorous deciduous, dense bush with upright stems growing up to 1.8m. Bright green foliage turns scarlet in autumn and has clusters of pendulous pale pink flowers. Blue Rose produces 4 -6kg large edible berries from December. Can be self-fertile but will perform better when pollinated by another variety. An attractive plant with true ornamental value.

Cultural Notes: Grows best in acidic, well-drained soil. This Blueberry is a Southern Highbush type meaning they can handle warmer climates but need about a week of accumulated hours below 7C temperatures during their dormant season. Needs regular watering during the growing season. To prune, remove small twiggy branches before the new growth appears leaving only the main stems. Birds love the fruit, remember to net. Leave fruit to ripen on on the bush until they are ready to eat - won't ripen once harvested. Information and images courtesy of Ramm Botanicals.
