Color is the main attraction with the Pink Lemonade Blueberry, but its sweet blueberry taste is a winner as well. 

Its fiery-red autumn foliage and pinkish-white flowers in the spring makes this shrub an eye-popper that will dominate the bush scene with warm colors. 

The hot pink fruit that results in the summer is as delicious as it looks, overflowing with sweetness and flavor. 

This Blueberry has a distinctive look that will have the neighbors and onlookers admiring their beauty and begging for a taste to satisfy their curiosity. 

Don't let the pink coloring fool you. The plant is a relatively hardy species that is self-pollinating and ripening mid to late summer. 

The shiny, bright pink fruit has a firm body and delicious flavor. 

Close your eyes and you'll still know you are eating blueberries. 

The Pink Lemonade makes a great border plant and does well in beds or combined with other ornamentals.

It's Easy to Plant your Pink Lemonade Blueberry

Specific Directions for Pink Lemonade Blueberry
Your Blueberry bushes will thrive in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. The more sunlight that your bushes get, the more fruit they'll produce as long as they are in a well drained area of your yard, that doesn't collect any standing water.

Acidic soil with a pH balance ranging from 4.09 to 5.5 will be best for your Blueberry Bushes. Use a pH meter to measure the acidity of your soil and add sulfur or Peat Moss to increase your soil's acidity level.

Fertilize your Blueberry Bushes early every Spring, as your Bushes emerge from winter dormancy and flower. Midsummer after you harvest your Blueberries fertilize your bushes again. Use an organic fertilizer for an acid loving shrub.

Your Blueberries won't be ready to be picked until their stems appear blue, not red or green. Once your Blueberries are ripe they will be a dusty dark blue color.

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Pink Lemonade Blueberry.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Pink Lemonade Blueberry gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Pink Lemonade Blueberry again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Very strong and beautiful berry bush
I ordered one 1-gallon pink lemonade blueberry bush last year, it's been one year so far; I live in New Jersey and we had a very long and cold winter the past year, some large sized blueberry bushes I ordered from other nursery died; this pink lemonade bush survived very well and thrived when spring came,the bush is compact and grow uniformly in all directions. No flower/fruit yet, but its dense and pink-yellowish leaves themselves are very beautiful. Also it does not seem to be bothered by insect, I do not need to spray. Love this blueberry bush and recommend to every blueberry lover.

Can this grow in zone 9? I see that this berry is recommended for zones 4-8. I live in zone 9. What is it about our climate that makes them not grow here and is there something we can do to make it work?
Kerry W on Jul 15, 2014
Best Answer: I would not recommend this variety.. There are other varieties such as the sorbet that are better for your zone. You may be able to keep it alive, but it will never thrive. Mine have struggled because of the hotter than normal condtions and we live in zone 7. Berries in general tend to grow better in climates that are seasonal. Zone 9 tends to not have the lower temperatures during the winter and fall. Also, the soil content may play a factor due to additional organic matter further north. Those are just thoughts. You can fix the soil, but not the temperatures. Good luck.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
