Blueberry Bushes and Plants
Berries Unlimited only provides tissue cultured and virus indexed plants for blueberry bushes and plants, and that ensures the health of the plant, our customer's success, and to get the most yield possible. For the best results we have broken them up into Northern blueberry plants and bushes and southern blueberry plants and bushes. Our plants are 2 to 4 + years old ready for planting. Blueberry bushes are comparatively long-lived plants. On the average, they can produce at peak yields for many years. Most bushes will live and bear for more than 50 years, as long as they are properly maintained. Blueberry bushes have a profusion of white/pink blossoms in late spring, leaves which are glossy green, blue-green in summer and outstanding colored foliage in autumn. Besides fruit production, they are beautiful ornamental and are used in a variety of landscapes. Blueberries make great hedges! And Tea made from blueberry leaves (tops picked before bearing) is healthy and delicious! For larger berries and higher yields it is better to have 2-3 varieties.
There is a lot of confusion Northern varieties vs Southern varieties. For example Duke is considered a northern blueberry but the number one blueberry planted in North Carolina is Duke! You can grow some of hardier Southern varieties in the North, zone 5: O'Neal, Sunshine Blue. We allow you to Shop Blueberries By Hardiness Zone to make ordering for Your Zone easier.
