Product Overview

Blueberry shrubs are becoming one of the most popular choices for east-to-grow edible fruit for the home gardener. The Tifblue Blueberry bush will reach a mature size of 12 ft. x 12 ft. In spring small white and pink bell-shaped blooms will appear, then fruit will develop in late spring to mid-summer. Blueberry bushes thrive when planted in acidic soil that is rich with organic material and in part shade to full sun environment. When planting blueberry bushes you will want to plant more than one variety to ensure cross pollination which will result in quality fruit. We recommend climax, woodard, premier, or becky blue as your cross pollinators.
  • Plant in well drained acidic soil
  • Full sun to part shade
  • Produces edible berries
  • Water often until established
  • Easy to grow/maintain
  • Cross pollinator required for quality fruit

Stem Rot/fungus
Came in well packaged but the plant condition was horrible. Had a big case of stem rot with a lot of black spots on the plant. I’m going to return and re order hopefully the other ones come back good.

    Looks good for being near winter
    I was surprised at November I was shipped a good foot tall berry bush. I was almost expecting a dried up tiny twig.

        Had to return this shrub as it came with black spots on the leaves. They were infected with some fungus or other disease, and would not have survived. Did not expect this quality issue from "home depot"... Sorry to say...

          Plant was very well packed and surprisingly healthy with green leaves! Most plants shipped in CA are almost dried up or in shock so what an absolute value for this price I paid. Definitely will order from this company again.
