About "North Blue":
Combining the more upright habit and larger fruits of northern high-bush blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum) with the compactness and exceptional cold-hardiness of low-bush blueberry (V. angustifolium), this half-high cultivar bears quantities of large tart dark-blue berries in early summer. The firm succulent fruits are preceded by small white urn-shaped flowers. The broad upright waist-high plants have oval dark green leaves that turn brilliant orange and red in fall.
About "Sunshine Blue":
Blue is the ultimate edible ornamental for a pot and it grows only 3-4' tall! It has glossy silvery-green leaves and is semi-evergreen for year-round color! In the spring, it bears masses of pink flowers (instead of the traditional white) which are followed by lots of berries with a unique tangy flavor for up to nine weeks in the summer.
