Blueberries offer a unique combination of abundant fruit and striking beauty. A native perennial flowering plant, they are an easy addition to the garden as they are drought tolerant and rarely bothered by pests. Blueberries prefer acidic soil between pH of 4-5.5. And as they cannot be fertilized by their own pollen, they will produce more and bigger fruit when planted with at least one other variety to allow for cross-pollination. Let the bees work their magic! Fruiting times vary between May - August.
