This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: prefers moist but well-drained, acidic soil or ericaceous compost in a pot
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A great addition to the kitchen garden or allotment, this new, decorative blueberry is also worthy of a place in a mixed border or patio. Each spring, fresh new foliage emerges in a rich shade of burgundy red, before gradually turning greener as the season progresses. Then, in summer, clusters of white flowers appear, and these are soon followed by a crop of tasty berries, which can be harvested from late summer.

  • Garden care: Prepare the ground well before planting. Prune in winter, cutting out dead or damaged branches. In spring, feed with sulphate of ammonia, sulphate of potash and bonemeal and top-dress with ericaceous compost.
