Midnight Cascade Weeping Blueberry
Midnight Cascade Weeping Blueberry is the first ever cascading blueberry! Now your hanging baskets can be filled with blueberries that gracefully weep down the side of a hanging basket for easy picking deliciousness. Midnight Cascade can also be used effectively as a low growing ground cover as it only gets about 18 inches high before taking on its weeping form. Berries are very delicious and aromatic and the foliage takes on a beautiful fiery red in fall.
