Description

Hi Bush Blueberry Bush-Vaccinium corymbosum

Hi Bush Blueberry Bush, Vaccinium corymbosum, are tall plants which can reach a height of 6-8 feet, with the berries being larger than lowbush blueberries, and produce more berries than the low bush. The flavor of a Hi Bush Blueberry Bush is less sweet and strong compared to the lowbush variety. There are two different types of HHi Bush Blueberry Bush; Northern Highbush. 

Planting Hi Bush Blueberry Bush

Keep in mind, they are not quickly grown and for best results need to be pampered a bit.Pick a spot that receives full sun if you can, but if not,Hi Bush Blueberry Bush will tolerate some shade, but not for the whole day. The PH level of the soil you are going to plant a Highbush in must be under 5. If the PH level in the soil is between 5 and 6.5, adding sulfur will increase the acidity of the ground and should the PH level be higher than 6.5, a raised bed with the right kind of soil and sun exposure can work. Hi Bush Blueberry Bush need to be mulched and fertilized occasionally, as mulching will keep out weeds and keep the moisture in the soil and feeding with a rich combination of potassium and phosphorus will help much. Plants need to be out of the way of high winds and areas that drain poorly.

Hi Bush Blueberry Bush plants blossom in flowers in the spring, have beautiful green leaves in the summer, and in fall, turn colors that are outstanding.

It is best if a Highbush is planted with other blueberry varieties to not only lengthen the harvest season, but plants do better. Plant in early spring, five to seven feet apart in rows eight to ten feet apart, and plant in a hole roughly two times the diameter of the plant. Plant the bush in lower than it was at the nursery, mulch after planting, and prune flowers off the shrub for the first two years.
