Lowbush Blueberry Description

Lowbush blueberry (Vaccinium angustifolium) 

Lowbush blueberry is a small deciduous shrub. This shrub grows in thick clusters that usually reach up to 6 inches to 2 feet tall and wide with multiple stems and twiggy branches. It has simple, lanceolate leaves in an alternating pattern with serrated edges.

Its flowers are bell-shaped with sweet berries that vary in color from a bright blue to bluish-black, and you can consume them directly from the plant. Its fruit is a delight for birds, wildlife, and humans alike. They have shallow fibrous roots that stretch out from lengthy taproots. The stems have a reddish hue to them. A single bud may generate numerous flowers, while a strong stem can sustain several buds.

As the name implies, it is a low-growing plant native to North America. You may find them growing in open conifer woods, sandy or rocky balds, and old fields. This plant will give year-round appeal with its colorful blooms to your landscape.

White flowers with a pink tint will appear in clusters on the plant in the spring. In the autumn, the delicate foliage transforms into hues of vivid crimson, delivering a much-needed pop of color during a time of year when it is so dark and gloomy. The tiny, sweet, delicious berries mature and prepare for harvest during summer. This shrub grows in abundance due to the infrequent wildfires in the area and the openings that these burns generate.

This adaptable shrub has outstanding aesthetic value both within and beyond the crop yield, with white spring blooms, deep green summer leaves, crimson autumn color, and reddish winter branches among its many characteristics. They are the official state delicacy of Maine, and the wild varieties are also known as the Nova Scotian Provincial Berry.''

Lowbush Blueberry - Vaccinium Angustifolium - provides a long-lasting visual display in your landscape.

Growing conditions

They are very cold-hardy plants that thrive in zones 3 to 6. It may grow in various conditions that range from full sun to partial shade. Nevertheless, a position with full sunlight will result in more blossoms, fruit, and beautiful autumn leaves than a place with partial sun. When it comes to soil type, this plant has precise requirements. They prefer acidic and sandy soil with good drainage and ideally rich in organic matter.

It is a low-maintenance plant that needs pruning every other year to keep the berry's output healthy. You may have to remove older and less productive growth from the tree immediately after harvesting. You may need to trim your patch's margins to keep the plants from spreading. These shrubs are propagated from seed, softwood, or hardwood cuttings and sods and through the formation of underground stems known as rhizomes. It requires regular or one to two inches of water every week.

Using an acid-loving plant fertilizer, you may have to fertilize the plant twice a year, once in the spring and after harvest. Regardless of the method you use, it is best to plant them in early spring or fall before the new buds are established.


They are becoming more commonly accessible on the commercial scale because of their health benefits, including high in vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber, and antioxidants. You may preserve the berries in various ways if you manage to resist eating them all immediately after picking them. You may use them to create blueberry jam and jellies or dry them and can them. You can also combine them with vinegar to make a tasty sauce or marinade for your meats. You may also use them in syrups and baking. 

A field of these plants is a beautiful way to cover up a patch of barren land with its ornamental value. Plants like Low Bush Blueberries are nutritious, picturesque, and ideal for rustic decor. Enjoy a year-round supply of luscious organic fruit right from your yard, deck, or patio pot by adding this plant to your landscape.

    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.
