Patriot Blueberry

Description
Even if you don't have an extensive fruit and vegetable garden, Patriot makes a lovely landscape addition. It's a nice low-growing and spreading bush for the border. Its performance is one you can rely on-adaptable to many soil types, resistant to root rot and tolerates wet soil better than typical blueberries. It's also very beautiful. Dotted with pretty white blooms in spring, deep blue berries around July and then the foliage turns to fiery shades in fall. It's known in home gardeners for its consistent heavy harvests, delivering up to 20 lbs of fruit per plant. Plant it alongside a blueberry that blooms around the same time for its best harvest, like Jersey Blueberry. Vaccinium 'Patriot'
