Vaccinium ‘Patriot’ – Halfhigh Blueberry
$8.00 – $44.00
An early-ripening variety from Maine with extra large, dark blue berries and excellent flavor. This 3/4-high blueberry is a hybrid between highbush blueberry (V. corymbosum) and lowbush blueberry (V. angustifolium) – it has more highbush than lowbush in its parentage and will grow to about 4 feet high. Showy white blooms, dark green summer foliage, and fiery orange fall colors. Extremely cold hardy and tolerates wet soils better than just about any other blueberry variety. The berry shows a ‘pink back’ and can be tart if picked too early, so be patient – you’ll be rewarded with a sweeter berry!
