Lowell, OR – Fall Creek Farm & Nursery, Inc., the world’s leading blueberry nursery stock and genetics company, unveils its latest addition to the BrazelBerries® Collection, Pink Icing™ blueberry.
With breathtaking spring and fall foliage, Pink Icing is sure to standout in any garden. Spring brings a lovely new foliage color that has varying shades of pink mixed with blue and deeper greens. In winter, Pink Icing’s foliage takes on a stunning iridescent turquoise blue foliage hue, which looks striking when planted en masse.
This ornamental beauty 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 3-4 feet tall with a slightly spreading habit. Enjoy its large, sweet berries during mid-summer. Grow in zones 5-10.
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 a branded one-gallon or larger containers with an informative tag.
