Tophat

Top Hat is a perfect name for this dwarf cultivar as it grows 1' — 2' high and wide. Top Hat is the result of crossing a short stature Highbush with a compact, small Lowbush Blueberry. Plentiful white blooms in spring give way to attractive light blueberries that are pea sized and larger. Top Hat is perfect for defined border plantings or growing in patio containers. It also makes an excellent candidate for a bonsai project.
