Pot Size

Our new Native Florida blueberry variety is the perfect compact shrub for your natural, edible, or wildlife-focused landscape.  It produces small but mighty flavorful berries and has beautiful pink to blue-green foliage.  Common names include Darrow's Blueberry, Evergreen Blueberry, Scrub Blueberry, or Southern Highbush Blueberry.

Southern Highbush cultivars, in addition to lower chilling requirements, also have greater tolerance to high summer temperatures, somewhat greater drought tolerance and develop superior fruit quality under southern (AlabamaFloridaGeorgiaLouisiana, and Mississippi) growing conditions. As a rule, Southern Highbush blueberries are self-fertile. However, larger and earlier-ripening berries result if several cultivars are interplanted for cross-pollination.

Plant Type: 
Perennial Fruiting Shrub

Harvest Season: 
Spring - Summer for Sweetcrisp, Native Florida, and Sunshine Blue varieties

Mature Size: 
1-6 ft.

Soil & Moisture: 
Rich, well-draining, acidic soil. Loves coffee grounds and pine bark (finely milled) to help with drainage and acidity.

Full Sun, Part Shade for higher production. Blueberries grow natively in the shade.

Outdoors 5-10; Patio/Greenhouse 4+

    Healthy Plant

    Plant arrived healthy, packed well and appears in good condition. Can't wait for it to grow! It was smaller then I would expect for a medium pot though.
