Plant Description

Top Hat' is a lowbush blueberry developed by Michigan State University that is especially dense and compact growing only to about 2 feet by 2 feet. It bears very sweet, medium/large, scruptious berries in early to mid-summer. It does not require a different blueberry variety to produce lots of berries but a companion would help. 'Top Hat' has attractive blue/green leaves that turn fiery red in the fall before falling off. It prefers full sun or light shade, and good but well drained, acidic soil. So in addition to producing great fruits, this little shrub has a nice compact shape and very good fall color. It would be a good container plant or an effective deciduous foundation plant. Very versatile!
