Rosa’s Blush Evergreen Blueberry is a colorful mounding deciduous shrub primarily grown for its size and color, due to the berries ripening a few clusters at a time over a long harvesting season. This slow but strong production of medium-sized sweet blueberries ripens early.  The small elliptical foliage emerges bright pink and matures to dusty blue-green with pink flush before turning deep purple-blue in fall. The shell-pink flower clusters bloom in spring  Grows best with full sun and rich, moist acidic well-drained soils.  While self fruiting 'Rosa's Blush should be planted with others to cross-pollinate to increase yield.
