Northsky is a half-high blueberry with wild lowbush ancestry. It is the most cold-hardy of all blueberries and can survive extreme winter conditions. Even in warmer areas, Northsky has been quite popular as a wonderful addition to the landscape, being particularly well-suited for container growing, borders or group plantings. The bush grows 2' – 3' wide and begins spring completely covered in snow white blooms. The foliage is dense, with small glossy green leaves in summer.
