Why plant Elliott's Highbush Blueberry?
Bodacious and sure to be a hit, Elliott's Blueberry is the perfect plant to provide for fresh berries ripe for eating and cooking! Ripening in late season, you will be enthralled with watching the pink-toned blooms transform into firm berries ideal for picking. You're landscape will pop with the seasonal interest of the bright maroon stems as the backdrop to the tasty, blue berries.
So many of the plants we grow for food come from distant places. The Highbush Blueberry is a homegrown American native. It grows in the wild from Maine all the way to Florida, ranging westward to Minnesota and Louisiana. Over the years, plant breeders have worked to improve the size, flavor, and quantity of its berries. Bluecrop was developed by USDA horticulturist Frederick Coville in 1934. Even today, it stands out for its hardiness, drought resistance, productivity, and vigor. In fact, it’s probably the most popular Blueberry variety in the U.S.
How to use Elliott's Highbush Blueberry in the landscape?
You'll be welcoming Elliott's Highbush into your landscape at the start of spring when dainty pink blooms start to make an appearance against deep maroon red stems. As late-season blueberry begins to ripen, berries up to half an inch will grace each deep maroon stem, ready for you to pick. This cold-hardy blueberry is self-pollinating and late to bloom. Do not worry if blooms do not grow right away; they are waiting until the late spring frosts pass.

How To Plant Elliott's Highbush Blueberry
Acidic soil is key to growing Blueberries successfully. These peat-loving Accents require very low–pH conditions in order to thrive. If your soil isn’t naturally acidic, you may want to grow Bluecrop Blueberry in a large container or raised bed. Give it all-day sun if possible and use lots of organic matter—both as a soil amendment and as mulch. Water weekly if no rain falls. Bluecrop Blueberry is self-pollinating, but you’ll get bigger fruits and more of them if you plant another variety of Highbush Blueberry nearby so they can pollinate each other.
How To Fertilize
Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.
