The name says it: From foliage to growth - this compact vaccinium angustifolium variety looks confusingly similar to Buxwood - but with one crucial difference: Numerous, delicious blueberries for snacking! The harvest of just a small plant in a 6 liter pot is incredible: 1200 berries have been harvested in our test garden this year. So the plants are not just decorative Boxwood-like figures for the garden, they also supply plenty of healthy nutrients.
With small, compact BerryBux® plants it is now possible to transform any flower box into an urban fruit hedge. And it looks amazing anyway, at any point of the year: In spring you have rich green foliage with plenty of white flowers, in summer you have countless aromatic berries and in autumn you get a wonderful red foliage color. This makes at least three dreams come true at once!
