Sunshine Blue is a compact blueberry ideal for planting in containers and small gardens. Its medium-sized berries ripen in mid-June and its attractive blue-green foliage takes on vibrant red and purple shades in fall. 'Sunshine Blue' is self-pollinating, but produces a heavier crop when grown alongside another Southern highbush variety such as Meadowlark or Farthing.

  • Best grown in USDA hardiness zones 5-10
  • Mature size is 4 ft. tall and 4 ft. w
  • Southern highbush variety that ripens in mid-June
  • Self-pollinating, but performs best when planted with another southern highbush blueberry for pollination
  • Requires 150 chill hours
  • Performs best in full to part sun

Had leaf rust
We received this plant undamaged but arrived with leaf rust spots. We bought some spray to treat and planted to see how it does but this bush was not as healthy as the other variety we received from home depot.

I'm so disappointed. This blueberry bush is absolutely nothing like the pictures. I will be returning it tomorrow back to Home Depot.

Response from National Plant Network TeamFeb 18, 2021
Hello AB - sometimes our blueberries arrive dormant and do not look like the photos. We recommend caring for it until warmer temperatures and it should start putting on new leaves and foliage once the warm weather hits. Thank you - National Plant Network
It has a disease!!
My plant has some kind of rust disease when it arrived. I really hope I can revive it and it doesn’t become a total waist of money!!

It is hard to know how to rate a plant only a few weeks after you put it in the ground. I got it in the mail. It seemed in good condition. It has been in the ground for four weeks and seems to be doing well. It is going to be a few years before it has blueberries on it like in the photo.
