Description

The Climax Blueberry is a prolific fruit-producing variety from the rabbit-eye family. This selection is naturally heat tolerant which makes it well suited for growing in the southeastern United States(USDA Zones: 6-9), but will not fair well in colder climates.

In early Spring Climax will be covered with white bell-shaped blooms, then will yield medium-large dark blue blueberries in late spring to early summer. Planting with other varieties of Blueberries for cross-pollination will vastly increase and improve fruit production.

For best results plant in a location that receives full sun to partial shade and in soil that is acidic and rich with organic matter. Annually, Use a slow-release acidic fertilizer on your blueberry plants.

To create full sun mixed beds of year-round interest incorporating edible plants we suggest planting with: Drift® Roses, Gardenias, or Sunshine Ligustrum

*The Climax Blueberry is a deciduous/semi-evergreen plant and will go dormant during the winter months. When this plant is ordered during the Fall/Winter expect seasonal foliage decline(discoloration, spots, leaf drop) or the plant to arrive completely dormant.*

Care & Use

Getting Started: Understanding Your New Plant

Review your plant's information on our website or the tag that comes with it. Be mindful of sunlight preferences, soil type, and spacing needs.

Our plants are adaptable but grow best in the correct USDA Zones. Click here to learn more about your USDA Zone.

Planting Instructions

Dig a Hole

First, dig a hole three times the width of the root ball of your plant. This makes it easier for the root system to spread out quickly. Dig the hole deep enough that your plant will sit level with or slightly above the ground around it.

Amend Your Soil

Mix your native soil with rich gardening soil to provide extra nutrients and support plant growth. If your soil is clay-heavy, we recommend mixing your native clay soil with equal parts of Pine Bark mulch to improve drainage and the overall breathability of your soil.

Place Your Plant

Examine the roots. If they appear tightly bound, gently coax them apart; this ensures they can spread into the new soil. Place your plant in the hole so the top of the rootball is even with the surrounding soil—Backfill around it with the amended soil mixture. The roots need access to oxygen for your plant to thrive, so do not cover the rootball; place soil around it.

Mulch Your Plants

Top the soil beneath your plant with 3-4 inches of mulch to help it retain moisture. Be careful not to cover the rootball - your new plants roots need access to oxygen.

Water Your Plant

Soak the plant with a hose afterward to hydrate the plant, as well as get the soil and mulch situated. Develop a regular watering schedule based on your plant's needs and local weather patterns. Remember, over watering is just as, if not more, harmful than under watering.

Spacing Recommendations

How to Space Your Climax Blueberry

Set the Blueberry shrubs on rows 10 to 12 feet apart; space plants no closer than 6 feet apart unless you want a hedge for small space. The plants will crowd when mature if they are spaced closer than 6 feet.
