Your Jersey Blueberry Bush (Vaccinium 'Jersey') is a fruiting and flowering ornamental shrub most valued for its tasty fruit! The dark-blue clusters of large berries ripen in August and are crack-resistant, firm and deliciously sweet. They're excellent baking berries, as well as perfect for many culinary uses, or eaten directly off the bush.

Spring brings delicate white blossoms that transition into your sumptuous fruit. The waxy, dark green foliage provides a lush appearance throughout the summer, turning a spicy red for autumn, like a last gasp of color for your yard. Plant one of these wonderful bushes in a sunny spot where you can enjoy its spring bloom, delicious harvest and fall display!

The fruit is full of antioxidants and a variety of vitamins, and other health benefits, making this not only a tasty treat but also a beneficial contribution to your overall health. Blueberries also perform well as an ornamental shrub for any sunny site on your property!

Planting and Application:

Large enough to be privacy and screening plants, as well as focal points and flowering accents, Blueberries are prized for their versatility and edible landscaping abilities! Flowers for pollinators, shelter for birds, and ornamental food sustainability for you and your family!

Use these mid-sized shrubs along property lines or as your foundation shrubs, or just as the backdrop to your garden beds and vegetable gardens. Easily pot up into large planters so that even container and patio gardeners can enjoy fresh fruit right on their balconies, porches and around seating areas while gaining screening and privacy too!
