Blueberry Pink Icing 180MM

Blueberry ‘Pink Icing™’ – 180MM

I am Pink Icing™ Blueberry. My family originated from North America

Botanic Name: Vaccinium corymbosum ‘ZF06-079’(PBR)

Bushy – Bushel and Berry®

I am prized for my showy foliage and large edible robust flavoured berries.

My spring foliage has many shades of pink mixed with blue and deep greens and turns a stunning iridescent turquoise blue in winter.

I am a variety ideal in decorative pots or plant me out.

I provide year-round colour and beauty.

I am evergreen when planted in a warmer aspect and semi deciduous in cooler areas.

I prefer acidic (low pH 4.5 to 5.5) soils or potting mixes (which might be labelled as also suited to Roses, Gardenia and Azaleas).

For best fruiting I need 500 chill hours suiting me to areas south of Brisbane.

Full Sun (6+ hours of direct sun)
Height: 1m Width: 1m
I need moderate water. Give me a drink when the top of my soil starts feels dry. I dislike wet conditions
Great for Pots
I perform well in most free draining soils but do best in those that are fertile with an acid pH (4.5 – 5.5)
I am popular and will make you happy because…
I am a low maintenance shrub producing clusters of large sweet, robust flavoured blueberries in summer
My foliage has many shades of pink mixed with blue and deep greens turning iridscent turquoise blue in winter
I am just as happy in decorative pots and containers as I am planted out in the garden

  • as a screening hedge
