Blueberries grow on a bush that can range from one to 15 feet tall
Woody vines make up this shrub. The leaves on the blueberry plant are oval or elliptical and alternate sides of the stem. Most are a blue-green color that changes to orange, purple, red, or yellow in the fall.
The short-lived flowers only last about 10-to-14 days. They are white or pink, depending on the chosen blueberry variety. The bell-shaped flowers appear in clusters of about 10 flowers. The number of blooms on each plant depends on the selected type. Blueberries need cold winters to fruit-producing flowers.
Blueberries need to be kept consistently moist
This sun-loving plant comes in three different groups with many varieties within each group. Lowbush blueberries, often called native blueberries, grow up to 2 feet tall in zones 3 to 6. Half-high blueberries grow to be 4 feet tall in zones 3 to 5. High-bush blueberries grow to between four and seven feet in zones 4 to 7. The tallest option is the rabbiteye blueberries that expand between 10 and 15 feet tall in zones 7 to 10.
Blueberries thrive when given care throughout the year. Blueberries need to be pruned in the early spring. Then, in late spring, they need a 2-to-3-inch layer of mulch put around their roots before the hot days of summer arrive. The soil should be amended to make sure it stays acidic before winter arrives.
After the flowers disappear, blueberries will grow on your plant, assuming it is at least two years old. Some varieties produce fruit in early summer, while others do not produce fruit until late summer.
