Southern Highbush Varieties Blueberry Plants
The Best Blueberries to Grow South of Virginia!
Southern 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 Southern Highbush varieties:
O'Neal - Tops for flavor, this shrub is so productive that you often get 2 smaller harvests instead of 1 large one -- much better for prolonging the season of yummy fresh berries.
Sunshine Blue - This edible ornamental caused such a furor when it was introduced more than a decade ago that gardeners are still proudly displaying it in their finest patio tubs! Beautiful flowers and lovely fall foliage complement the big yields of delectable berries on plants small enough to put in a 12-inch pot!
Sharpblue - So sweet and juicy, these berries are about the size of a dime, love hot weather, and arise in great numbers on vigorous plants. A favorite for many years, it is dependably generous, season after season.
