Powderblue Rabbiteye Blueberry is a tall vigorous upright deciduous shrub with a high chill requirement but very high production of firm sweet powdery light blue blueberries that ripen late.  The large elliptical blue-green foliage turns shades of yellow-orange in fall. The white flower clusters bloom in spring. Grows best with full sun and rich, moist acidic well-drained soils.  Powderblue resists cracking after rain.  Should be planted with others to cross-pollinate to increase yield.

Chlorosis may occur in high PH soils.  Blight, rot, anthracnose, canker, and mildew are occasional problems.
