Description

The Takes the Cake™ is a newly developed rabbit-eye blueberry bush from the Southern Living Plant Collection that produces bountiful amounts of large delicious blueberries in late spring to summer. In Early to mid-spring the Takes the Cake Blueberry will be covered in small bell-shaped white flowers that will develop into fruit shortly thereafter. This shrub has a controlled upright growth habit that will mature to 4-5’ H x 3-4’ W. This variety is characterized by early ripening, late flowering, and a moderate chilling requirement (500-550 hours); which helps ward off damage from late frosts and results high yields of quality fruit.

If this plant is ordered in winter it will be dormant on arrival!

Planting Instructions

  • water before planting
  • plant in full sun
  • dig hole 3X the width of pot,
  • backfill and plant 1″-2″ above soil level
  • water and add more soil if needed

***Remember when planting blueberry bushes you should plant two or more different types so that the bushes can cross pollinate.
