Meet the 2015 release for the BrazelBerries Collection, Pink Icing!
The newest variety in the BrazelBerries Collection, Pink Icing, has breathtaking spring and fall foliage. Spring brings lovely new growth foliage color that has varying shades of pink mixed with blue and deeper greens. In the winter, Pink Icing foliage takes on a stunning iridescent turquoise blue foliage hue which is impressive when planted en masse.
Pink Icing is a wonderful complement to Peach Sorbet, another BrazelBerries blueberry variety. Plant Pink Icing as a backdrop with Peach Sorbet in the front for varying heights of foliage colors. BrazelBerries network growers trialed this variety for 2-3 years and begged us to release it due to its beautiful foliage colors. So here is PInk Icing! Plant in decorative patio pots or plant in the landscape or garden for year round color and beauty.
