Yes, there are pink blueberry varieties available. Blueberries that ripen to pink and never turn blue. This year, my Pink-a-Blue blueberry produced a decent crop for me. Flavor is sweeter than that of a regular blue blueberry. Pink-a-Blue fruit size and plant remind me of Duke, with a slightly later ripening season.
Highly recommended.

I'm also growing a variety called Pink Lemonade. So far this one has not fruited for me. It is actually late in that its size is large enough to produce fruit, but hasn't set any. It was marketed as able to produce in my area, but I'm starting to think it may be too much of a southern variety for here.

Thought it might be one for me to try, but it gets too large for my very small yard. Think there are a couple of dwarf ones that are rated to my zone 8a.
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'

My pants are only about 2 feet tall at the moment. Don't know how large Pink Lemonade will get.

Every reference I've seen says 4-5 feet. Sunshine Blue is a semi-dwarf for warmer zones, and self-pollinates, but it also gets to about 4 foot. I don't know anything about blueberries. Can they be kept trimmed, to say 3 feet or so, without eliminating berry production?

I believe they can be kept trimmed, but do not do this myself. I usually only trim out the deadwood that comes from time to time.
