Blueberries are mainly deciduous shrubs with oval leaves that produce pretty bell shaped white flowers in spring, followed by small blue-purple berries in summer. The leaves of the plant take on attractive red-orange tones in autumn. Berries are best left to ripen on the bush - bird netting may be required.
