Why did you choose this?
Stark Bro's Store
The first reason is hardness zone considerations, second is the description of the appearance of the bush and third is the fruit size described.

I chose this blueberry because I was looking for a small sized plant for a container that would do well in my hardiness zone.

small size and it sounds yummy!!!

I had read about these in Better Homes And Gardens a few years ago. They are going in a new area behind an addition to the back of my house. I like that the leaves are shades of pink and the flowers are white. I like plants that are both attractive and edible.

When do you prune? I had read that you should prune only the fruiting stems after harvesting...
Kristen M on Jul 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The do not need cutting back the first year except to remove fruit buds shortly after planting. Pruning should be moderately heavy in the second year to stimulate strong new growth on selected canes. I am attaching a link to our Growing Guide pruning section.

What size pot should I buy to put the bushel and berry plants into (diameter and height)?
Lai N on Apr 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: A 20" container would be ideal.
What blueberry should I plant with 'Pink Icing?"
Sharon R on Mar 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Pink Icing is self-pollinating, so it will set fruit by itself, but if you were looking for other container-friendly blueberry recommendations, then any of the other Bushel and Berry varieties (Blueberry Glaze, Jelly Bean, Peach Sorbet, Perpetua) will work just fine. Really, any other blueberry plant is an option for you as long as it's recommended for your zone!
In the fall does it loose its leaves?
Chris on Nov 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is deciduous and loses its leaves eventually.
