Highbush Blueberry is best grown in acidic, organically rich, medium to wet, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Shallow, fibrous roots need constant moisture and good drainage. Plants appreciate a good organic mulch. The native blueberries are self-fertile so more than one shrub is not necessary. Best to remove flowers from plants in the year of planting and in the following year so as to prevent fruit set and to encourage new vegetative growth. Prune as needed after 2 to 3 years of growth, in late winter beginning in the third year after planting. The dark green foliage can turn bright shades of coppery red in fall. Urn-shaped flowers bloom in spring.
