Design IdeasThis blueberry need not be limited to orchard or kitchen garden. Makes a useful accent shrub in borders, against fences and foundations. Great in acidic soils of transitional conifer canopy driplines or openings in natural woodlands. Line up a beautiful and fruitful hedge. Share with birds by planting in habitat gardens.
Companion PlantsCombine with other half-high blueberries such as Northblue Blueberry (Vaccinium x 'Northblue') and Northcountry Early Seasonal Blueberry, (Vaccinium x 'Northcountry'). Blends well with other Ericaceous plants such as Sneezy Rhododendron, (Rhododendron x 'Sneezy') and Aphrodite Scotch Heather, (Calluna vulgaris 'Aphrodite').
Care Information
Provide an acidic, well-drained soil. Water regularly during the growing season to maintain a deep, extensive root system. Before new growth begins, prune off twiggy growth, leaving only main stems to prevent overbearing; feed with an acidic fertilizer.

History:
Blueberries love the acid soils typical of all members of the Ericadeae which share the small bell-shaped flowers. The genus includes about 150 species of shrubs found in the Noarth America and eastern Asia. This is a hybrid between the swamp blueberry, V. corymbosum and V. angustifolium. It is a hybrid introduced by the University of Minnesota in 1983.
