Quick Overview:

Deep indigo blue flowers much more vibrant than B. australis and a perfect plant habit are the key features of this new variety.  An excellent floral display occurs in late spring to early summer.

The deep blue-green foliage forms a more compact, upright mound to 3ft tall at maturity.  ‘Blueberry Sundae’ is a vigorous grower and the foliage looks great all summer.  Ornamental seed pods extend the season of interest into fall.


Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Best in full sun. Tolerates drought and poor soils. Over time, plants develop slowly expanding clumps with deep and extensive root systems, and should not be disturbed once established. May be grown from seed, but takes several years to establish. Plants take on more of a shrubby appearance and tend to open up after bloom. Trimming or shearing foliage after bloom helps maintain rounded plant appearance and obviates a possible need for staking, but eliminates the developing seed pods which are so attractive.   (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Gardens Plant Finder)
