Lowbush Blueberry Vaccinium angustifolium


Lowbush Blueberry: A densely branched shrub with a distinctive shape, Vaccinium angustifolium, or the lowbush blueberry, is a native species to North America. The woodland native species performs exceptionally well in cooler USDA growing zones.


Some other common names for the lowbush blueberry are wild blueberries or Maine blueberries.


From adorning your garden to harvesting wonderful, tasty fat berries to baking pies or making jam or preserves, the lowbush blueberry plant is well worth your consideration.


The Lowbush Blueberry Is a Highly Attractive Shrub


Besides the main attraction--the delicious berries--the plant is a thing of true beauty. The lowbush blueberry takes its name from its diminutive height, which tops between two and four feet high. That reasonable height makes it attractive in the back row in a border garden. It's also fun to plant this shrub near flowering species like azaleas--the mix of textures adds unexpected visual appeal.


As a native New England shrub, the lowbush blueberry is a winter hardy species that goes dormant in the winter and awakens early in the spring. In the late spring and early summer, the lowbush blueberry shrub likes to put on a show of glossy green foliage, delicate white flowers with a lovely bell shape, and of course, its richly hued indigo blueberries. In the fall, the leaves turn a delightful rust color that closely matches their stems.


Lowbush Blueberry Plants Require Minimal Care


Although they have specific growing needs, lowbush blueberries are relatively carefree once you meet these requirements.


Like most native species at TN Nursery, lowbush blueberry plants require only minimal care. The primary consideration for the successful cultivation of blueberry shrubs is the soil. They prefer loose or sandy acidic soil.


You must provide adequate drainage and rich organic matter like compost. An ideal growing companion for blueberries is peat moss.


If you meet these growing demands, the bush is easy to take care of. To keep your plants healthy, twice-yearly fertilizer, adding organic material when needed, and an annual pruning are all you must do.

    Lowbush Blueberry

    Posted by Helen Tai on Apr 13, 2022

    The plants were of high quality and wrapped well. The reason I didn't give 5 stars: 1) I asked that they be shipped mid-April and received a response that they would do their best but that it would probably be later. However, I received them on April 8, before I had time to prepare the ground for them. 2) All the descriptions of lowbush blueberry are that they are low growing ground cover, which is what I wanted. However, these plants were 2.5 feet tall. I decided to plant them anyway. Hopefully they won't get any taller.

    These plants are good sized, but it’s hard to tell much else. I planted them promptly & am hoping they will be happy & thrive in their new home!

    My fave fruit bearing shrub. A good accent to some of my flowering shrubs. My choice was the best after a consultation with the TN nursery technical staff. Many thanks

    Am a blueberry fan and I enjoyed my harvest last fall. It was an achievement able to utilize all its fruits and am ready to prepare the other side of my blueberry fields. Thank you TN nursery for the items, I got everything in good condition.
