Vaccinium angustifoliumLowbush blueberryDo yourself (and the birds) a favor and plant several of these amazing bushes.
V. angustifolium has so many things going for it. In addition to being a provider of delicious blueberries, its delicate pink-white bell-shaped flowers are a welcome springtime sight. Lowbush blueberry gives brilliant orange color in the fall and Vaccinium species (blueberries and cranberries) support around 300 butterfly and moth species, including the at-risk Half-Black Bumble Bee (Bombus vagans). We can't say enough about this fantastic plant.Lowbush blueberry grows up to 2 feet tall and is best sited in full sun to part shade in medium well drained soils. Plant more than one V. angustifolium for the best fruit production.
Use: Just your average super delicious blueberry!
