  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: prefers moist, well-drained, acidic soil or ericaceous compost in a pot.
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Other features: light blue berries (June-July)
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Late spring flowers, that are rarely affected by frosts are followed by an early crop of light blue berries that have a firm flesh and a mildly sweet flavour. Each mature bush has a high yield of long-lasting fruits, making it one of the most productive cultivars.
