Perpetua is unique in that the new growth produces flower buds that proceed to break bud without winter dormancy and then flower and ripen late-summer into a fall crop. While many blueberries will produce a few fruit in the fall on 1-2 buds at the tip of the new growth, ‘Perpetua’ will flower on up to 4-6″ of the new growth. An attractive combination of dark green and glossy leaves on a vigorous, vase-shaped, compact plant.
