Product Details

Product Details

Part of the family of BrazelBerries® compact berry bushes, this attention-getter provides a fascinating foliage show along with a harvest of full-size Blueberries. New leaves emerge in spring in striking shades of pink with blue and green accents that continue right through summer. In fall, the foliage turns to shades of lavender. We've been impressed by the number of flowers on young plants at the nursery. The result is a large harvest of delectable, plump sweet berries that ripen in midseason. The compact, round shape of this shrub makes it especially appropriate for growing in containers and along the edges of sunny borders in the landscape. Although plants are self-pollinating, they tend to produce better harvests when grown with a different Blueberry variety to help with cross-pollination. 'ZF06-079' 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 a slow-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. Be certain the soil is moist when the plant is brought under cover, and water very sparingly during the winter. Once every 6 weeks is generally sufficient. The intent is for the plant to go as dormant as possible. In spring, bring them outside when temperatures remain above 25 degrees 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.

Shipping

Shipping
Every state has agricultural regulations that restrict the shipment of certain plants. We're sorry, but we cannot ship this item to the following states: GEORGIA, OREGON, WASHINGTON, CALIFORNIA.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

BrazelBerries Pink Icing

g. long from Winston Salem, NC

Just received plants (2). Have not planted outside as of yet. Plants arrived in exceptional shape. The way White Flower Farms packaged this product did not allow for soil in the pot to spill out during shipping. They took the time to place absorbent paper across top of pot und used cellophane tape to hold it in place. Plants were fresh looking and the soil in the pots was still moist. Will definitely be a returning customer
