Sweet Symphony Blue
After the particularly hardy Polar Fruits® and the popular Lucky Berry® family, the new Sweet Symphony Blue concept is all about blueberries, blueberries, blueberries. That's right - three times blueberries thanks to three selected Vaccinium varieties.
The berry bushes offer a true fruit symphony all summer long. Berries that are more than 1,5 cm in diameter, with a sweet, juicy and fruity taste and a plenty of vitamins. Thanks to their compact growth they are also excellently suitable as a container plant on the terrace. With this selection of varieties, delicious fruits can be harvested from July to September.
Berry Blues begins to show its fine, white, bell-shaped flowers as early as May. Until June, it diligently forms new buds. The sweet, juicy fruits, up to 1.5 cm in size, can then be harvested over a period of several weeks from the end of July / beginning of August. In autumn, the leaves take on a gorgeous autumn colour ranging from yellow to orange and bright red.
The growth is medium-strong and upright, it grows up to 2 meters high and 1.5 meters wide, which is why you should ensure that there is enough space when planting. Berry Blues feels most comfortable in an acidic soil without waterlogging. It is hardy, but needs winter protection in a pot.
Sweet Juicy Beats:
A little later than the Berry Blues, the Sweet Juicy Beats then shows its pure white flowers from June and also constantly reproduces new flowers over several weeks until July. The huge berries ripen from the end of July until September, grow up to 1.5 cm in diameter and taste sweet to slightly sour. In autumn, its foliage shines in bright yellow and orange tones.
Sweet Juicy Beats grows up to 1.5 meters tall and around 1.2 meters wide with an upright, loose habit. The plant needs acidic soil, rhododendron soil is particularly suitable here. Waterlogging should be avoided and in winter it needs winter protection if it is placed free-standing in a pot. In the garden bed, however, it is sufficiently hardy.
Blue Sugar Pop:
This plant is the narrowest variety in this symphony. The Blue Sugar Pop only needs about 60-80 cm of space in width and grows to a maximum of 1.5 meters. The soft pink, cup-shaped flowers appear from May, which turn into tasty berries up to 1.5 cm in size in August and September. They taste sour to slightly sweet and can be eaten straight away or frozen for later use. In autumn its leaves turn yellow to orange before the plant sheds its foliage in winter.
Blue Sugar Pop thrives particularly well in acidic soil that is well drained. Sun to semi-shade is ideal as a location, it is very hardy and only needs some protection from frost in a pot.
