Pot Size

Our new Native Florida blueberry variety is the perfect compact shrub for your natural, edible, or wildlife-focused landscape.  It produces small but mighty flavorful berries and has beautiful pink to blue-green foliage.  Common names include Darrow's Blueberry, Evergreen Blueberry, Scrub Blueberry, or Southern Highbush Blueberry.

Southern Highbush cultivars, in addition to lower chilling requirements, also have greater tolerance to high summer temperatures, somewhat greater drought tolerance and develop superior fruit quality under southern (AlabamaFloridaGeorgiaLouisiana, and Mississippi) growing conditions. As a rule, Southern Highbush blueberries are self-fertile. However, larger and earlier-ripening berries result if several cultivars are interplanted for cross-pollination.
