Sunshine blueberry blossoms

February 5, 2015

 

I posted a photo of our Sunshine blueberry plant buds last month. They were still a darkish red color. And here is a photo of the same plant now. All those dark buds are now pretty pink blossoms. You see them all in the background too.

 

This plant is in a large plastic container in our backyard. It seems to be in the perfect spot where it gets some hours of sunlight and a lot of air around it because the container is on a low table. I was told when I bought this particular blueberry that it will do fine in a container or in the ground. In a container it should grow up to 3 feet wide by 3 feet tall. Now the plant is more than 2 feet wide and about 2 feet high.

 

Then we just need the bees to pollinate the blossoms this spring so that we'll have delicious, juicy berries from early summer through fall. And how are we attracting the bees? We have a lot of plants for them and other pollinators growing right nearby -  lavender, oregano, and several kinds of salvia and much more!
