Sky Dew™ Gold Vaccinium

Growing blueberries used to be about fruit alone, but Sky Dew™ Gold has changed that forever. Its bright chartreuse foliage is fabulous all throughout the summer and the bright blue berries practically glow against the sunny background. The show intensifies in late summer as hues of gold and orange start to creep into the leaves. All at once it erupts into bright red for a show that is sure to put a smile on your face and draw people in asking, “What is that plant?”
