Ripening midseason, the low-growing, Lowbush Burgundy Blueberry (Vaccinium angustifolium 'Burgundy') is an outstanding cultivar of the beloved Wild Blueberry! In early spring, incredibly glossy new leaves emerge a bold burgundy-red. They'll cover the well-branched plant, and mature into a very sophisticated gray-green for the summer season.

Watch for the pale gleam of small, bell-shaped flowers later in spring for the benefit of pollinators. These develop into your berries, so their appearance is a great reason to celebrate! The berries are set to the outside of the bush. This makes harvesting your annual crop of light blue berries a snap!

Burgundy is an excellent choice for that flavorful, sweet Wild Blueberry taste. Pop the small, firm berries in your mouth fresh from the bush. They'll even keep well in the fridge if you have self-restraint. There is nothing better than a Lowbush Wild Blueberry for use in pancakes and muffins. The incredible flavor shouldn't be missed.

Planting and Application:

Include these excellent plants in your landscape design. You'll want plenty of their great-tasting berries on hand. You'll appreciate these delightful small fruiting and flowering shrubs throughout your landscape or on your balcony. Pot up in planters and containers, or create a modern street planting! These diminutive plants are great edging and groundcover, growing only 12-15 inches tall!

You gain access to delicious, homegrown blueberries and enjoy a wonderful color-changing display throughout the growing season, the fall display is world-class! Imagine a fiery, red-orange edge along the length of your planting beds. Self-pollinating Blueberries produce larger harvests with partner plants. Mix multiple plants into plantings and groupings for accents, wildlife habitat and bountiful food sustainability.

#ProPlantTips for Care:

It's easy to grow compact, dense Blueberry bushes in acidic soils with a pH between 4.5 to 5.5. Use them in patio containers if you have alkaline soil. The rugged Burgundy takes the cold and tolerates coastal conditions and road salt. Provide lots of moisture and fertility, plus a healthy layer of mulch for best results.

  • Full Sun & Part Sun
  • Acidic, Well-Drained Enriched Soil
  • Moist to Wet Conditions
  • Prune When Dormant
