A colorful showstopper, this compact Blueberry is stunning, with new spring growth in shades of peach, pink, orange, and emerald. Its white, bell-shaped flowers in spring give way to an abundant summer crop of healthy, sweet fruit, followed by deep purple foliage in the fall. These versatile plants are equally attractive as a shorter hedge or in a decorative container on the patio. Although plants are self-pollinating, they tend to produce better harvests when grown with a different Blueberry variety to help with cross-pollination. ‘F06-043’ PP 23,325

Growing BrazelBerries® Blueberries in containers.
BrazelBerries® are dwarf plants that produce full-size fruit. They will produce some fruit in the first couple of years, but really hit their stride in the third year and beyond. Upon arrival, replant in a 12-16″ container using a peat-based potting soil mix with pine bark. Place the container outdoors in full sun for the growing season. As your plant matures, you will likely need to put it in a 20-24″ diameter container. Your plant will start producing more fruit in the second year.
Fertilizing. BrazelBerries® Blueberries thrive in acid soil (pH of 4.5–5.5). Fertilize your plants with aslow-release fertilizer designed for acid-loving plants in spring and again in midsummer.
Pruning. In spring, prune out any dead branches. After harvest, prune out fruit-bearing branches, leaving new branches to fruit the following season.
Wintering over. In colder climates (Zone 5), you can overwinter plants in their containers by storing them in a sheltered, unheated area such as a garage or shed once the leaves drop in fall. In spring, bring them outside when temperatures remain above 25° and place in full sun.
In warmer climates where freeze-thaw cycles occur, store plants on a protected porch. Where freezing is not a concern, plants can remain outdoors in containers and enjoyed year round.
