Sunshine Blue Large (southern highbush): Zone 5-10 mid season 12 cm pot.
Sunshine Blue - this variety is a dwarf blueberry bush ( 4' tall) that makes it a perfect container plant. Sunshine Blue is covered in bright pink flowers in spring followed by sweet, juicy dark blueberries in summer. Its foliage changes into red-orange in fall. Blueberry Sunshine is also easy to grow. It's self-pollinating, hardy all the way from Zone 5 to Zone 10, and it's more tolerant of high pH than most other blueberries. Dwarf habit allows to keep right pH in containers. Zone 5-10. 12 cm pot. Large plants!

I have other Sunshine blue bushes and they still product after 5 years on a shady patio. I put in sun during early spring but soon as the heat starts up I push back into the patio to avoid sun as sun burns the leaves. But it comes back every year even with leave browning. It puts on fruit without needing a pollinator. The berries are small and a tangy sweet flavor. They survive well in containers. What I do is add potting soil mixed with a lot of peat moss and a little compost topper once a year. The peat keeps it acidic so I've never really needed to add any acid chemicals to the pot.
