PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Model # BLBSSHAQT

Internet # 203642904

A southern highbush blueberry requiring only 150 chilling hours is great for southern gardens. This compact, self-pollinating plant produces sweet, medium-sized berries. Berries ripen in May and June. An excellent ornamental plant that can be grown in containers and used as a patio plant. More tolerant of high pH soils than most blueberry varieties. A blueberry for southern regions, hardiness zones 5 - 10.

  • Bushy plants with slender foliage are an excellent addition for patio plantings and containers
  • Blueberries are high in antioxidants and provide many nutritional benefits as well as tasting great
  • Sweet, medium-sized berries
  • Berries ripen in May and June -- mature plants can yield up to 10 pounds of berries per plant
  • Plant with other southern highbush blueberry varieties that fruit earlier or later for longer berry picking
  • Grow in acidic, well-drained soil
  • Provide at least 6 hours of sun a day and in warmer climates grow in partial shade
  • Apply an acid fertilizer (such as a rhododendron or azalea fertilizer) in early spring
  • Apply 2 - 4 inches of mulch around plantings to conserve moisture and protect plants
  • Self pollinating, which means it does not need another plant to grow fruit
  • Easy-to-plant size
  • Container grown plants provide virtually no transplant shock compared to bare root plants
  • A blueberry for southern regions in zones 5 - 10

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by worried My blueberry was all sticks with dead dried leaves. And almost three weeks later is still that way. My raspberry plant is prosperous and I ordered then both the same day and they arrived together March 24, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by container blueberry So far so good. Planted in 2.5 bushel muck buckets. Took a week or so to recover from being packed in a box (as any live plant would). Lots of new growth. No berries this season, I ordered them to late in the season. June 25, 2013
