Grown for both home and commercial use, the Rubel blueberry makes a versatile landscape shrub. Of course it produces the tart, antioxidant-rich berries that we love in muffins and pies. But it also provides year-round interest — white blossoms in the spring, red foliage in the fall and red twigs in the winter.
- Provides a consistent crop each year, up to 15 lbs.
- Produces small, full-flavored, tart, antioxidant-rich berries
- Requires acidic soil
- Is self-fertile, but the crop is better if cross-pollinated
- Will be delivered at a height of 6"–1'
