Nature Hills has been delivering commercial-grade fruiting plant material online since 2001. Our team includes the best growers in the business, hands down.

When you search for the right Blueberry bush, look for varieties that thrive in your local area. Jubilee Blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum 'Jubilee') is a heavy producer in some tough conditions where other varieties fail.

Jubilee was an introduction from the famed Mississippi State University. It performs in areas with high summer heat and humidity.

It also produces well, even in thick clay soil that retains water. This is an unusual and very welcome trait for Southern gardens!

Sky-blue berries are rich in natural fruit sugar, along with an incredible amount of antioxidants. Recent studies even make reference to their ability to help you reduce risk of heart disease, and a host of other health benefits.

Get ready to harvest your berries in mid-season. Fruit clusters are well-exposed on the outer periphery of the bush for easy harvest.

Jubilee is self-pollinating. But, you'll improve your yields with partner plants like early season Jewel nearby.

Enjoy the fresh, sweet berries plucked straight from the bush. Or, add them to great-tasting smoothies for an explosion of sweet flavor.

Freeze or preserve what you can't use fresh. Chefs love having these valuable ingredients on hand.

Not everything has to be healthy, either!

How can you resist fresh-baked muffins with a sizeable pat of organic butter? Prep pies in advance and freeze them to bake and serve as needed.

Jubilee also serves an ornamental function, as well. Beautiful, bell-shaped blooms gleam pink in springtime.

The lush, semi-evergreen foliage remains on the shrub in warmer climates. As nights start cooling down, the blue-green leaves burnish into a warm-toned fall color display from orange to yellow.

Plant in acidic soils with a pH between 4.5 to 5.5. Or, add to containers and grow bags for a high-quality harvest on your balcony.

We will sell out of our limited inventory of durable Jubilee Blueberry plants. Don't delay in placing your order to grow your own amazingly sweet Jubilee berries.

How to Use Jubilee Blueberry in the Landscape

With an upright habit and lovely flowers, fruit and foliage, Jubilee makes a useful privacy screen. Make room for showy fruiting plants throughout your space.

Grow it along the back of your Kitchen Garden. Place it in your patio plantings. Run a long row in your side yard.

No yard? Not a problem. Grow them in 24-inch grow bags on your balcony or patio.

Use in a staggered double row with four to six feet of space between plants. They'll need a little air circulation and you'll want to pluck every berry you can, after all.

People across the country are feeling the need to increase their food security with fruiting plants at home. You'll love the feeling of having plenty of frozen, homegrown berries in the deep freeze.

Make the most of your home garden planting with a successive harvest planting. Early season Jewel and late-season O'Neil would give you many weeks of fresh fruit to enjoy.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Blueberries need acidic soil with a pH between 4.5 and 5.5 at their root zone. Test your soil before you plant in the ground.

If your pH is much higher, it can be a lot easier to use container culture for "Blues." Pro tip: collect neutral pH rainwater in a barrel to water your berry bushes.

Otherwise, use acidifiers like sulfur, and organic amendments down at the level where the roots will develop. It will take time to change your soil pH. Keep testing the soil regularly to ensure you don't overdo it!

Count your blessings if you have wild Rhododendron or Lupines growing in your area. You'll likely be quite successful with in-ground planting.

Provide at least four hours of direct sunlight a day, favoring morning sun and afternoon shade. In cooler summers, they'll be fine in full sun.

Jubilee Blueberries require consistent weekly moisture, especially during fruit production. Mulch with pine straw or bark to cut down on surface evaporation and keep the roots nice and cool.

Young stems are the most productive. Prune out a few of the woodiest, thickest stems in early spring, before the leaves emerge. Make this a regular rejuvenation practice every few years.

At the same time, apply a slow-release fertilizer for acid-loving plants. Please use the application rate on the label.
