Are small, wimpy blueberries not your thing? Do you like large, juicy, tangy blueberries? Well then get ready to fall for a new favorite - the Patriot Highbush Blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum 'Patriot'). These Blueberry Bushes are beautiful and productive and are known for their large, round fruit.
In May, your Patriot will be covered with clusters of white bell-shaped blossoms, pulling in pollinators from near and far. Then this Highbush produces large crops of big, dusky blue fruit with firm flesh and plenty of flavors.
Once picked, your berries will store well in the refrigerator, letting you enjoy them fresh for weeks. Add some to your breakfast cereal, add to yogurt, turn into jam or jelly, or bake in a pie or muffins. Use your imagination and you will have plenty of berries to experiment with!
This variety ripens intermittently, giving you multiple harvests as your bushes consistently produce large crops for you and your family to enjoy. Order one, and maybe buy an extra bush or two and share it with the local bird population. Not only will you get to enjoy the beautiful fruit and foliage, but you will also be helping wildlife!
A little smaller than other varieties, but Patriot is still tall enough to use as an edible hedge if you choose! They also work in large containers and planters on sunny porches and patios. This variety winters well, and the deep green foliage of summer turns from brilliant orange to burgundy in the fall, adding a beautiful bit of color to your landscape.
Patriot Blueberry enjoys full sun to partial shade and organically rich acidic soils. Preferring moist soil, plant it where the soil is damp to wet but well-drained. The roots also prefer to stay cool so mulch well, since the shallow, fibrous roots need protection and insulation.
The Patriot Blueberry Bush is an upstanding garden addition that will reward you with 3 seasons of beauty, food, flowers and fall color! Now at NatureHills.com, where you will have your garden delivered to your door today!
