This native blueberry produces sweet, dark blue berries from mid-to-late summer and has an open, airy form befitting a shrub border or native garden environment. Dainty white flowers cover the bush in May, and its dark green leaves put on a magnificent autumn show as they transform to a reddish-bronze color, making this a great selection for both taste and aesthetic purposes.
