Double Cropper. Double Cropper. Plant BrazelBerries® new Perpetua™ in the landscape or garden for a true double-cropping blueberry that sets one crop of delicious fruit in mid-BRAZELBERRIES_Perpetua_Blueberry_-_bush_c2013_Fall_Creek_all_rights_reserved.jpgsummer and then flowers and fruits a second time to provide ripe fruit in the fall.

This landscape beauty is somewhat vase-shaped, growing upright to 4’-5’ tall. The leaves are a rich, glossy dark green and curly or twisted in the spring and summer, turning to deep reds and greens in the winter. New canes are bright yellow and red when dormant, which adds a blaze of color to the winter landscape. Enjoy Perpetua’s mild and sweet berries in the summer and fall. Grow in full sun in zones 4 – 8.
