About Your Climax Blueberry Bushes
Savory Climax Blueberry Shrubs
The Climax Blueberry Bush 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. Very few blueberry cultivars produce huge, tightly-crowded clusters of berries that contain as many as 100 medium size berries per cluster as compared to the Climax Blueberry plant. The Climax cultivar is a USDA introduction of Rabbiteye blueberry bushes that was developed with the idea of producing an entire crop of berries that ripen at once. 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. Climax Blueberry Bushes also make an excellent hedge with the added benefits of summer fruit which can be harvested or left for the birds.
