Lowbush Blueberry is native
to the Northeastern North America where it grows in moist woods, bogs, swamps
and low areas. It is an upright, deciduous shrub that typically grows 6 to 24
inches tall. Masses of dainty, waxy, bell-shaped, white or pinkish flowers appear in May with the new leaves. Flowers are followed by blue-black blueberries to 1/2" which ripen in summer. Ovate, dark green or blue-green leaves, to 3.5" long, turn attractive shades of reddish
bronze in fall. Reddish stems can be attractive in winter.
Lowbush Blueberry is a versatile
shrub that has excellent ornamental value separate and apart from the fruit
crop: white spring flowers, dark green summer foliage, red fall color and
reddish winter stems.
Zone: 2 to 8
Plant Type: Deciduous
Native Range: Northeastern United States
Height: 6 inches to 2 feet
Spread: 2 feet

Bloom Time: May
Bloom Color: White or pinkish
Flower/Fruit: 0.33" long urn-shaped white to very light pink

Sun: Full Sun to Part shade
Fall Color: Reddish Bronze
Drought Tolerance: Low
Site Requirements/ Soil Tolerances: Best grown in
acidic (pH of 4.8 to 5.2), organically rich, medium to wet, well-drained soils
in full sun to part shade. Shallow, fibrous roots need constant moisture and
appreciate a good organic mulch. Although blueberries are self-fertile,
cross-pollination produces the best fruit crop (larger berries and larger
yields). Best to remove flowers from plants in the year of planting and in the
following year so as to prevent fruit set and to encourage new vegetative
growth. Prune as needed in late winter beginning in the third year after planting.
Birds love the fruit, so plants may need to be covered with netting as the
fruit begins to ripen in order to protect the crop.
Uses: Effective in shrub borders or as part of less formal
shrub plantings such as in native plant gardens or open woodland areas.
Particularly effective in conjunction with rhododendrons and azaleas which
share similar acidic soil requirements.
