A Compact and Cold Hardy Blueberry
The Chippewa Blueberry, Vaccinium 'Chippewa', is a fast-growing blueberry bush with ornamental appeal. Grow several for a mixed border or use as an ornamental foundation plant.
Combine an upright, compact growth habit with large fruit and cold-hardiness and you have the Chippewa Blueberry. Delicate white flowers artfully set against the dark green backdrop of the Chippewa’s oval leaves make a startling impression in the spring.
By early summer your Chippewa Blueberry offers a bountiful harvest of succulent, sweet blueberries instead. When the harvest is done, brilliant orange and red color will decorate your bush’s slender branches ushering you into winter in style.
Your Chippwa Vaccinium will reach a height of about 3 feet tall and spread about 4 feet wide. It grows fast and tends to be long-lived. It will hold an attractive shape by itself, but will tolerate pruning if you prefer.
You may have to compete with the songbirds for your harvest, but they’ll certainly repay you with their lovely presence in your yard.
The Chippewa Blueberry has a lot to offer in such a little blueberry bush. Try one today and begin enjoying a harvest of both bounty and beauty all year round.
