'BLUEJAY' Blueberry (Vaccinium x corymbosum 'bluejay')
Vaccinium corymbosum, commonly known as high bush blueberry, is an upright, deciduous shrub native to eastern North America where it typically grows in moist woods, bogs, swamps and low areas. White, pendulous, urn-shaped flowers bloom in spring. The round, sweet berries are dark blue to purple with a dull, blue-grey bloom on their surface. The high bush blueberry is a valuable source of food for wild animals and is an important commercial and home garden crop worldwide.
‘Bluejay’ is a variety that usually grows to 5-7’ tall, but may be pruned shorter. Dainty, waxy, bell-shaped, white flowers appear in May. Flowers are followed by medium-sized, light-blue blueberries that ripen in mid-season. Medium-green leaves turn attractive shades of yellow-orange to red and purple in fall. Reddish stems can be attractive in winter.
USDA Zones 4-8.
Available in 2-gallon pot.
