More About Blueberry Bushes

All of our Blueberry shrubs are Rabbiteye Blueberries. Historically, blueberries were more of a northern crop. However, Rabbiteye Blueberries changed that. They grew natively in the Southern U.S. before being cultivated. Fast forward to today, and we have numerous different cultivars, each with delectable berries that any Southerner should consider adding to their landscape. Furthermore, they have VERY few pest concerns.

Many have heard of classic Rabbiteye varieties, including the very popular Climax Blueberry and Premier Blueberry, however, we have branded varieties as well. Takes the Cake Blueberry and Bless Your Heart Blueberry from the Southern Living Plant Collection were explicitly bred to bring out their best attributes. These unique breeds produce more tasty fruit, controlled growth, and increased hardiness. When planting rabbiteye blueberry bushes, you should plant two or more varieties. Growing more than one variety will allow the plants to cross-pollinate, yielding better fruit. The more varieties you have, the better.

Important Note: These deciduous plants will arrive dormant if ordered from late fall to early spring.

Blueberries do very well when planted dormant. This period usually occurs from December to late February. They also do well when planted in the spring and fall. Avoid planting blueberries in the summer, as they will get stressed.

Rabbiteye blueberries will produce the most fruit when they are placed in full sun.

Most of our rabbiteye blueberry varieties do best in USDA Zones 7 through 9, but a few do well in Zone 6, and some do well up to Zone 10.

Blueberries can be pruned after fruit production has occurred. You don't want to prune before they've flowered and produced fruit because you'll end up cutting off the buds. Most of our varieties fruit in the late spring through the early summer.
