Blue Gold Blueberry Bushes for Sale Online
Blue Gold Blueberry (Vaccinium 'Blue Gold') is one of the easiest fruits to grow and this variety was bred for its sweet berries that ripen mid-season. It is a blueberry bush of short stature with impressively plentiful blueberry yields. Blue Gold Blueberry is a compact fruit-producing shrub that is perfect for landscaping but also performs surprisingly well as a container plant.
Blue Gold Blueberry is tolerant of hot, humid conditions, and its medium sized berries tend to ripen in late May to early June. Blueberries prefer full sun for best fruit production and even moisture. Around 450 chill hours are needed for ideal fruit set. This versatile shrub 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. 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. Blue Gold Blueberry bushes also make an excellent hedge with the added benefits of summer fruit which can be harvested or left for the birds.
