Very slow growing blueberry bush, but very hardy. We planted one of these about 5 years ago at approximately 18" and as of last summer, it had now grown large and well branched enough to start producing good fruit at about 3-1/2' - 4' high.

This bush has withstood extended periods of winter temps of -25 degrees, ice storms and more with no winter protection. Great blueberry bush!
