Earliblue Blueberry Plant
Lovely Shrub with a Tasty Treat
Earliblue Blueberry is a deciduous shrub that produces delicious blueberries. Plant one in a sunny spot, or even part shade. Having one of these on your patio (in a container), would also be a nice conversation-starter with guests.
Your Earliblue Blueberry is of course best known for its remarkably luscious fruit, but is also a beautiful shrub with its spring flowers and fall color. Adorable, bell-shaped flowers bloom in mid-spring, their pristine white shade hinting at a subtle pink as they dangle daintily below the reddish-grey branches.
The flowers give way to light blue fruit in mid-summer, lovely amid the foliage and sweet to the taste. Earliblue’s fruit has a mild sweet flavor, is resistant to cracking and ripens uniformly. The glossy, green leaves provide a rich backdrop for both the flowers and fruit, transitioning to a lively burgundy-red for autumn.
Earliblue Blueberry will grow up to 6 feet in height with a 5-foot spread. It is a multi-stemmed shrub with an upright habit and mounding form. It’s adaptable to a variety of conditions, but prefers acidic soils. Earliblue Blueberry is long lived, living up to 30 years under optimal conditions.
Blueberries have long been valued, not only for their exquisite flavor but also for their nutritional attributes, and Earliblue Blueberry is no exception. It provides a prolonged harvest of high quality blueberries each year, with a multitude of health benefits to recommend them.
An investment in an Earliblue will bring you not only beauty and delicious fruit, but be a step in the right direction toward a healthier you!
