Tasty Berries—Twice Per Year!
There's nothing better for the blueberry lover—Perpetua produces fruit twice per season! You'll get the most berries out of your first harvest in midsummer, and then a second crop in fall, just in time for pie season. The berries are delectable; small and sweet. They're great for eating fresh, using in desserts and you can freeze them for a sun-ripened treat to brighten a dreary winter day. Purpetua really has it all, because it's not only especially productive, it's a beauty in the landscape. The glossy leaves provide a deep green backdrop for little white spring and summer blooms. The clusters of berries are beautiful on the bush, if you can hold off eating them! The foliage makes a scene in autumn, turning a brilliant shade of red. Then it falls away, revealing red and gold branches for a festive accent in winter. Plant it out in the border as year-round excitement, or you could easily control the soil pH for acid-loving blueberries in a patio pot. Perpetua is self-pollinating, so you won't have to worry about planting another variety for berries. PP24209
