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, blueberries.

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 your 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. Elliott's 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 Water

When watering the Elliott's Blueberry, you'll want to water them regularly. In the summer, irrigation is recommended every two or three days to protect the plant for the hot summer weather.

How To Fertilize

After you have planted your blueberry, you'll want to fertilize in the early spring and late spring. We recommend using our Elements Starter Plant Food.

How To Prune

Not much pruning is required, however, you can prune in late winter to early sprung to thin out the branching. This will help maintain the plant size and make harvesting easier.

How Does Shipping Work?

Size Small (AAA), Medium (A2A), and Large (AA) plants (our Treelings, Shrubs, Bushes, and Perennials) will be shipped directly to your home by a common carrier. Ships in a plant-safe designed box within 5-7 business days.
