Regional Picks: Four Season Interest – Southern Plains

Fine Gardening - Issue 148

1. Bountiful Blue® Blueberry

Bountiful Blue® Blueberry

Name: Vaccinium corymbosum ‘FLX–2’

USDA Hardiness Zones: 6 to 10

Size: 3 to 4 feet tall and wide

Conditions: Full sun; acidic, moist, well-drained soil

This blueberry was bred to be more beautiful than traditional varieties but without compromising the volume of fruit or its flavor. Bell-like white flowers in spring are followed by supersweet berries in early summer. The foliage has a blue sheen that holds through the heat of summer and turns maroon in fall. Bountiful Blue® is self-fertile but produces even more fruit when paired with another cultivar.
