Bluecrop Blueberry Bushes for Sale Online
Bluecrop Blueberry Bush (Vaccinium Bluecrop) is the most beloved blueberry shrub known for its adaptability and lengthy fruit yield. It is cold-hardy so it does well in colder climates and it produces large clusters of sweet, juicy berries.
The Bluecrop Blueberry bush is also disease-resistant and very low maintenance, making it an excellent choice for any gardening skill level. At the end of fruit season and into fall, this versatile shrub’s leaves start to change from green to a stunning red.
Bluecrop 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, Bluecrop Blueberry bushes can be more than just a fruit bush. These shrubs also make an excellent hedge with the added benefits of summer fruit which can be harvested or left for the birds.
