Pink Lemonade Blueberry Bush (Vaccinium ‘Pink Lemonade’)

Pink Lemonade Blueberry Bush

Pink Blueberries? Yes! The Pink Lemonade Blueberry Bush (Vaccinium ‘Pink Lemonade’) is a delightful ornamental edible Blueberry with bright pink fruit! Featuring all the qualities and hardiness of a typical Rabbiteye Blueberry bush, but with a long-lasting harvest of summer and fall specialty fruit!

Petite, bell-shaped flowers will be your first surprise when the delicate, pink-hued blooms appear in spring. Their light fragrance will call to pollinators, enhancing your experience with the butterflies and bees that come in for a visit. Blueberry bushes are special in that they not only produce delicious fruit but are also beneficial as an ornamental shrub and a deciduous, fruit-bearing bush!

Pink Lemonade will fill out nicely for summer into a vase-like shape. Its silver-blue and serrated, lanceolate leaves blanket the arching limbs, creating a lovely silhouette for your landscape. As summer progresses, tiny green berries will appear, slowly transitioning to white, then light pink, and finally the dark pink that indicates they’re ready for a taste!

Planting and Application:

Your Pink Lemonade Blueberry will amaze you with its versatility. Several of these would look outstanding at the back of your perennial bed, along a foundation or even plant just one in your garden for a summer treat. Save space and pot one up in a large planter!

When autumn is upon you, you’ll revel in the orange-red coloring of the leaves that is the final ornamental step before the leaves drop to reveal the yellow-red twig color underneath. So go ahead and use these as 4 season foundation plantings, hedgerows for privacy and wildlife shelter, (those nosy neighbors won’t mind) or as a dual-purpose specimen planting screening off your front yard from the street.
