Bushel and Berry™
Pink Icing® has breathtaking spring and fall foliage. Spring brings lovely new growth foliage color that has varying shades of pink mixed with blue and deeper greens. In the winter, Pink Icing foliage takes on a stunning iridescent turquoise blue foliage hue which is impressive when planted en masse.
Pink Icing® is a wonderful complement to Peach Sorbet®, another Bushel and Berry™ blueberry variety. Plant Pink Icing® as a backdrop with Peach Sorbet in the front for varying heights of foliage colors. Bushel and Berry™ network growers trialed this variety for 2-3 years and begged us to release it due to its beautiful foliage colors. So here is PInk Icing! Plant in decorative patio pots or plant in the landscape or garden for year round color and beauty.
This blueberry produces new canes each spring, but sets fruit on the previous year’s canes. Once fruiting is complete, prune canes that have fruited leaving new canes to fruit the following season. Annual pruning promotes plant growth and berry production. Prune plants annually during winter dormancy.
