3 year old plant, 1 gallon container
Top Hat Blueberry simply has to be seen to be believed. Here is a beautiful, mound-shaped, compact shrub that is ideal for containers and small spaces, loaded with so many flowers in spring it looks like a white-flowering heather, followed by hundreds of delicious full-size blueberry fruits that make it doubly decorative. Top Hat is also becoming a favorite of bonsai enthusiasts, since the plant so easily allows itself to be restricted in a bonsai dish and shaped into a decorative bonsai accent, even flowering and fruiting as a bonsai accent.
Developed from a breeding program at Michigan State University by one of the country’s leading blueberry specialists, plants are cold hardy and easy to grow.
