I love the fall color on Blueberry bushes! Electric reddish-pink that grabs your attention. Blueberries are easy to grow in full sun and acidic soil. I recommend mixing in a huge helping of Peat moss into the soil as you are preparing it for planting a Blueberry. Most Blueberries will grow to 3’-4’ high and as wide, but I’ve seen some as high as 6’. There are many varieties so you can find some that will fit into any garden and it’s nice to mix the varieties because it extends the fruiting period and helps with pollination. Blueberries are extremely hardy, most to zone 4 and deciduous which means they give great fall color and lose their leaves in the winter. Berries are produced on two year old wood so be careful pruning them as you’ll be cutting away some of the berries for next year. White flowers in early spring, fruit in July. They have very shallow roots so make sure to mulch them and give them water in the summer.
We also have a brand new variety called ‘Pink lemonade’ which has pink flowers and the fruit ripens to pink instead of blue!
