RHS Perfect for pollinators logo

Vaccinium Corymbosum Bluecrop is a deciduous blueberry fruit bush with white sweetly scented RHS Perfect for Pollinators flowers and a large sweet blueberry crop in August. It has excellent autumnal colour and grows well in a plant container.

Blueberry Bluecrop is sometimes called Swampy Blueberry or High Bush Blueberry due to its native growing habit in North America and Eastern Canada. The parent plant Vaccinium Corymbosum is the most widely grown commercial blueberry in North America today which attests to its prolific fruit production.

Vaccinium Bluecrop is a midsized shrub with a more compact and neat growth habit than its native parent plant. It has small white clusters of flowers in spring that attract pollinators, and large edible blueberries in summer that are firm with a rich flavour like small grapes. After the crop, its leaves turn autumnal red and yellow before falling with the frost. This is an excellent ornamental shrub with the addition of sweet tasty blueberries that the birds will eat if you are not a fan.

Height And Spread of Vaccinium Corymbosum Bluecrop
This is a neat, compact blueberry bush that reaches a height and width of 1.5 metres.

How Hardy Is Vaccinium Corymbosum Bluecrop
Vaccinium Bluecrop is winter hardy if its roots are well-drained and it has good resistance to disease.

How To Use Vaccinium Corymbosum Bluecrop
Blueberry Bluecrop suits kitchen gardens and berry borders with its heavy crop of blueberries that can be eaten fresh from the shrub or frozen and used in jams or pies.
It suits country cottage gardens and also urban spaces or balconies that want an attractive plant with the added benefit of a fruit crop. Children especially enjoy blueberries, so this is a good shrub to kickstart their interest in the environment.
Blueberry Bluecrop will thrive in a well-watered and fed container on the patio or in a raised bed with other food-producing plants. On its own, it’s an ornamental shrub with attractive foliage and scented flowers that benefit a wildlife garden.

How To Care For Vaccinium Corymbosum Bluecrop
Vaccinium Bluecrop is self-fertile but does best with a pollinating partner.
It needs a sunny to partially shaded spot with some shelter from the prevailing cold wind to thrive. Acidic soil works best, so apply a thick layer of pine or bracken-based mulch in spring and feed with a specialist plant food for the heaviest crop of blueberries.
If you’re not interested in the fruit Blueberry Bluecrop can be left to its own devices in the border, otherwise, prune out dead or damaged branches in winter.
