New BrazelBerries Shrub Collection Addition: ‘Pink Icing’ Blueberry
Fall Creek Farm & Nursery, Inc., unveiled its latest addition to the BrazelBerries Collection, ‘Pink Icing’ blueberry.
‘Pink Icing’s’ spring foliage color has varying shades of pink mixed with blue and deeper greens. In winter, ‘Pink Icing’s’ foliage takes on an iridescent turquoise blue hue, which looks striking when planted en masse.
‘Pink Icing’ is a wonderful complement to ‘Peach Sorbet,’ another BrazelBerries blueberry variety with foliage ranging from peach to pink to orange to emerald green. Planted together, with ‘Pink Icing’ as a backdrop and ‘Peach Sorbet’ in the front, these two beauties are sure to provide year-round color to any landscape. Perfect for small spaces on patios or decks, ‘Pink Icing’ will grow 3 to 4 feet tall with a slightly spreading habit. Enjoy its large, sweet berries during mid-summer. Grow in Zones 5 to 10.
The BrazelBerries Collection of new berry shrubs is bred specifically for home gardeners. They are simple to grow, offer year-round beauty and produce delicious, abundant fruit. All BrazelBerries are self-pollinating, so only one bush is needed to produce fruit. ‘Pink Icing’ joins the other blueberries in the collection, ‘Peach Sorbet,’ ‘Jelly Bean’ and ‘Blueberry Glaze.’
Initial quantities of ‘Pink Icing’ will be available in 2015 exclusively to independent garden centers through the BrazelBerries network of wholesale growers. Growers will offer retail-ready ‘Pink Icing’ plants in branded one-gallon or larger containers with an informative tag.
