With its extremely compact shape, Jelly Bean® looks like a round bowling ball. That makes it a charming addition to any small corner on a balcony or patio. The light green new growth of Jelly Bean® in spring provides a brilliant display. As the summer progresses, the leaves turn a slightly darker green, and the tips turn bright red in the autumn.
Despite their compact growth, Jelly Bean® plants produce an especially high yield. The host of small blueberries taste just as sweet as the famous American jelly beans.
