Lowbush Blueberry Seeds (Vaccinium angustifolium)

Price for Package of 20 seeds.

Oranamental Flowers, Fall Color, Showy Edible Fruits, Attracts Birds and Butterflies, Wildlife Food/Shelter, Cold Tolerant, Shrub Border Lowbush Blueberry is native to the Northeastern North America where it grows in moist woods, bogs, swamps and low areas. It is an upright, deciduous shrub that typically grows 6 to 24 inches tall. Masses of dainty, waxy, bell-shaped, white or pinkish flowers appear in May with the new leaves. Flowers are followed by blue-black blueberries to 1/2" which ripen in summer. Ovate, dark green or blue-green leaves, to 3.5" long, turn attractive shades of reddish bronze in fall. Reddish stems can be attractive in winter.
Lowbush Blueberry is a versatile shrub that has excellent ornamental value separate and apart from the fruit crop: white spring flowers, dark green summer foliage, red fall color and reddish winter stems.

Site Requirements/ Soil Tolerances: Best grown in acidic (pH of 4.8 to 5.2), organically rich, medium to wet, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Shallow, fibrous roots need constant moisture and good drainage.
Culture: Plants appreciate a good organic mulch. Although blueberries are self-fertile, cross-pollination produces the best fruit crop (larger berries and larger yields). Best to remove flowers from plants in the year of planting and in the following year so as to prevent fruit set and to encourage new vegetative growth. Prune as needed in late winter beginning in the third year after planting. Birds love the fruit, so plants may need to be covered with netting as the fruit begins to ripen in order to protect the crop.
Uses: Effective in shrub borders or as part of less formal shrub plantings such as in native plant gardens or open woodland areas. Particularly effective in conjunction with rhododendrons and azaleas which share similar acidic soil requirements.
