Northern Varieties Highbush Blueberry Shrub Collection
Specially Selected for Success North of the Carolinas!
Northern Highbush blueberries are a magnificent ornamental edible! They bear white flowers in spring, glossy leaves in summer, spectactular foliage in fall, and bright red stems in winter. These blueberries would be highly sought even if they didn't give you all those huge harvests of luscious berries!
Blueberries are easy in full sun and most acidic soils. (The rule of thumb is that where Azaleas will grow, so will blueberries!) They are vigorous, need no pruning, and are generally untroubled by disease.
In this collection you will receive each of the following blueberry varieties:
Blue Ray - Expect huge yields of light blue, very large berries on this plant! A fine pollinator for other varieties, it's also a heavy producer, yielding up to 20 pounds in a single season. In autumn, the foliage turns bright scarlet.Earliblue - The name says it all! The first to mature in most gardens, Earliblue keeps going with mild, sweet, crack-resistant berries on handsome red canes. Red fall foliage completes the multi-season appeal.Rubel - An heirloom discovered in New Jersey in 1912, Rubel is treasured for the deep color, petite size, and rich flavor of its berries. Forms an upright bush reaching 6 to 7 feet tall.
