My second spring with my "Sunshine" blueberries. I am so pleased I just had to share these flowers with the world.
Blueberries do not like the alkaline soil of west of interstate 45. These are being grown in my "berry boat" full of rose soil and pine needles to acidify the pH . Of course every time I turn on the water faucet the soil gets more and more alkaline. "Sunshine" is one variety said to be more tolerant of heat and our alkaline conditions. So far, so good!
Even though there are only a few leaves I do love their fall/winter color. Won't be long now before this little bush will be all covered in green (and blue!).
Just because it is winter - there are blooms to be seen.
