Vaccinium 'Pink Lemonade' Blueberry


An Early Season Variety with Pink Blueberries

Brilliant fall foliage color

You have found it—the most exciting new plant of the season, guaranteed to delight gardeners in all climates. This Vaccinium hybrid is nothing short of a pink blueberry.

The quintessential ornamental edible, 'Pink Lemonade' offers year-round beauty for the sunny border. In spring, the glossy green foliage is dotted with small, sweetly fragrant shell-pink blooms. By May, in most climates, the first crop of berries is dotting this dense, well-branched shrub. The mid-sized fruit begins pale green then gradually blushes pink before ripening to a deep rosy shade.

Glossy and firm, the fruit has a mild, sweet bite. Successive crops arise on this rabbiteye variety until mid-fall, by which point the foliage has begun turning from green to yellow, gold, and finally brilliant reddish orange. Even in winter, russet-red bare stems keep 'Pink Lemonade' interesting.

Grow 'Pink Lemonade' as you would any other blueberry, in well-drained, enriched acidic soil that remains consistently moist. It is self-fertile, so you need plant only one. (It looks great in pairs, though). Cannot ship to CA, MI, OR, WA.
