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

The Blueberry is a deciduous shrub. The leaves are spirally arranged, narrow, and start out red-bronze in the spring only to develop into a dark-green. The flowers of the Blueberry are white, and bell-shaped. The fruit is a berry, which is dark blue to black, and has a thin wax coating.

Seasonal information: Blueberries are grown as an ornamental plant for its fall colors, typically bright orange or red. It is also a highly regarded "super food", containing beneficial vitamins and nutrients.

Location: When selecting a site to plant your Blueberry bush, make sure the site has full sun and drains well. The plant grows best in moist soil, not in soggy soil. Blueberry plants require acidic, well-draining soil. When planted in soils with a pH higher than 5.5, blueberry plants do not absorb nutrients adequately and become more susceptible to disease. Blueberry plants contract moisture-related diseases when exposed to humid conditions or standing water.

Planting instructions: Dig a hole with the shovel that is about twice the size of the root ball of the bush. Make sure the hole is the same depth as the container it comes in. When planting more than one blueberry bush, dig holes that are at least five feet apart in rows that are 10 feet apart. Amend the soil from the hole with peat moss. Make sure to thoroughly mix the peat moss with the soil from the hole. Place the Blueberry bush in the hole. Cover the roots with soil-peat moss mix.

Watering: Your blueberry bushes will need to be watered regularly to make certain that the root system becomes well established. The soil surrounding your tree should be moist, but never saturated. Light green leaves can be a sign of over watering, while drooping leaves can be a sign of both over or under watering.

Fertilization: You do not need to fertilize the Blueberry bush at the time of planting. Fertilize the Blueberry bush twice a year, once in the spring and once after harvest.

Weed Control: Hand-pull weeds near the blueberry shrubs. You can damage the shallow root system with garden tools.

Pests and Disease: Blueberries grow best in acidic soil and are subject to few pests and diseases. The Blueberries are not self-fertile, so two compatible varieties should be planted next to each other to maintain growth and fruiting. If maintained with mulching, the berries can handle temperatures as low as 10 degrees Fahrenheit. Blueberries can mature to the height of three to six feet with a width of up to three feet. The plant has few insect or disease problems; however, birds and squirrels are prone to eating them.

Pruning: Blueberries require only minimal pruning. Lower limbs can be thinned out to keep the fruit from touching the soil, and excessively vigorous upright shoots can be thinned out several feet from the ground to keep the center of the bush open, and to keep the bearing surface within reach. Spindly, weak, or dead branches should be thinned out annually during the dormant season.

Pollination: Blueberries are not self-fertile and must have two or more varieties to pollinate each other. Honeybees are inefficient pollinators, and carpenter bees frequently cut the corollas to rob nectar without pollinating the flowers. Blueberries do best when pollinated by buzz pollination by bees, such as the native southeastern blueberry bee.

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.

what color will the color of the berry be when ready to harvest (ripe)?

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.
Hello!! I have had this blueberry bush planted in a pot. I am in zone 7 and it survived the winter!! (I did put it in the garage when it was really cold)
But my question is, should I leave it outside when it snows in the winter or should I bring it inside? Do I still water it? Thanks!!
Eric P on Jul 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am in zone 5b, and I have this planted in the ground. It did fine in the winter. I've not gotten any blueberries yet, but it survived. Normally they say subtract two zones for a container plant, which would make your container's experience more like a zone 5. Snow insulates plants in the winter, so you could leave it out like any other plant. It will be dormant, so I wouldn't water it during the cold part of winter. As other plants start to bud in spring, maybe do some watering. I'm not an expert, but that's what I would do. Good luck!
I have a 2 Spartan blue berry already and I got 2 of the pink Lemonade from you. will they cross pollinate each other or will I need another type? if so what would be good for the Spartan and what type for the Lemonade Thank you for your help

Will my Trees 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.

Most Fruiting Plants 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.
