Description:

One of the best for mild-winter areas, a low-chill selection perfect for small gardens or large patio tubs. Blue-green foliage and showy pink to white flowers provide ornamental value, followed by an abundant crop of fruit. Self-fruiting, but yields best when planted with another variety. Recommended winter chill: 150 hours. Deciduous.

Great Quality Plant
by BreaMark, July 2, 2019

The plant received was in great shape. Only issue I had was I had to call Armstrong to find out my plant was in and had been for a few days.
