Blueberry 'Pink Icing'

In stock

Description

Large, sweet berries with a robust blueberry flavor in mid-summer. Self-pollinating. Spring foliage is a mix of varying shades of pink mixed with blue and deeper greens. In winter, the foliage takes on a stunning iridescent turquoise blue foliage hue.


Pruning tips: This blueberry produces new canes each spring, but sets fruit on the previous year's canes. Once fruiting is complete, prune canes that have fruited leaving new canes to fruit the following season. Annual pruning promotes plant growth and berry production.
