Pink Lemonade Blueberry is an upright deciduous shrub with low chill requirements and moderate production of mildly flavored very sweet dark pink blueberries that ripen mid to late season.  The glossy elliptical dark green foliage turns bright orange-red in fall. The white flower clusters bloom in spring.  Grows best with full sun and rich, moist acidic well-drained soils.  While self fruiting Pink Lemonade should be planted with others to cross-pollinate to increase yield.
