This is a southern highbush cultivar, which means it has a low chilling requirement for fruit set. It's also self-fertile and very compact. Flowers are pink (instead of the usual white), and the small to medium-size, midseason fruit are dark blue. Evergreen where winters are mild. Tolerant of relatively high soil pH.

Mid season. Great for almost any condition and it's evergreen and self-fertile! This slower growing, semi-dwarf (to 3') blueberry has a heavily branched yet compact habit. Pretty pink flowers fade to white in the spring, and yield an abundant supply of delicious, tangy sweet blueberries. A beautiful shrub for the border or planted in mass on the hillside.
