The Sky Dew™ Gold Blueberry is a striking perennial that makes for a lovely addition to an outdoor space due to its gold foliage. The 4-foot tall mounded growth habit allows this plant to serve as a border or a specimen planting, but this stunner also produces blueberries. The shrub blooms in the spring with pretty white flowers, followed by berries shortly after. The fruit can be eaten fresh, baked into pies or muffins, used to make jelly or jam, or frozen. After the berry haul, the foliage continues to add visual interest by turning shades of chartreuse and orange.

Note: Plant a compatible pollinating plant for berry production.

Sky Dew™ Gold Blueberry Care

Plant this mounded thriller 36 to 48 inches apart to create a lush hedge or border. This cultivar blooms on old wood, so wait several years before pruning the plant. Soil should be acidic and well-draining. The Sky Dew™ Gold Blueberry cannot self-pollinate, so include a compatible pollinating plant to ensure the shrub produces fruit.

Growing Sky Dew™ Gold Blueberry

Berries are ready to harvest in early summer. The berries will be plump and a deep shade of blue when ripe. Plant in full sun, and this 4-foot tall shrub will reach its full potential.

Growing Sky Dew™ Gold Blueberry in Containers

Plant the Sky Dew™ Gold Blueberry in a 12-inch container. Place the potted plant in full sun and water when the top couple of inches of soil are dry. 

Watering Sky Dew™ Gold Blueberry

The Sky Dew™ Gold Blueberry has average water needs, so water when the top few inches of soil start to dry out. This plant prefers moist conditions but does not like to be soggy, so avoid overwatering.

Feeding Sky Dew™ Gold Blueberry

Apply balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the spring to promote abundant growth. This blueberry is not a heavy feeder and will do well with rich soil high in organic content.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
