This deciduous rabbit-eye blueberry variety is an upright branching plant that is low-maintenance and provides an abundant harvest. Adapted for the southern United States due to its low chilling requirements. White and pink blooms emerge in early spring and give way to fruit ready to be picked mid-spring to early summer. As a fruit-bearing shrub, this plant will attract butterflies and birds. Harvest around June.
