Top Hat Blueberry is a dwarf rounded deciduous shrub with robust production of small sweet dark blue blueberries that ripen mid to late season.  The small elliptical blue-green foliage turns brilliant red-orange in fall. The white flower clusters bloom in spring.  Grows best with full sun and rich, moist acidic well-drained soils.  While self fruiting Top Hat should be planted with others to cross-pollinate to increase yield.
