A versatile plant for Aboriginal people.The ginger tasting roots were eaten and the flesh from the bright blue fruit.The large leaves were thatched and used to make shelters and to wrap food for cooking. Excellent landscape specimen.
Sunshine Blue has it all. This semi-dwarf, versatile semi-deciduous blueberry features showy hot pink flowers that fade to white in spring, yielding large crops of delicious berries. Sunshine Blue tolerates higher pH soils better than many other blueberries and it is self-fertile. It is is a Southern Highbush with the low chilling requirement of 150 hours makes it suitable for the subtropics, but we find it is surprisingly cold-hardy and a wonderful addition to patios and gardens in cooler areas.
