Northland Blueberry Bush (Vaccinium corymbosum ‘Northland’)

Northland Blueberry Bush

Northland Blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum ‘Northland’) is a cold-hardy Half-High variety that was developed by the team at Michigan State University and released in 1967. Northland is a high-yielding plant with a more vigorous growth rate than other similar varieties. This attribute, coupled with its huge crop, made Northland a quick success!

Northland Blueberry is a consistent producer, even after a tough winter and you’ll enjoy beautiful spring blooms that can tolerate light spring frosts. The pliable, arching limbs can withstand the weight of heavy winter snow. A mid-season ripening fruit, the productive Northland Blueberry will produce 3 to 12 pounds of fruit off of a single plant.

The medium-sized, soft, medium-blue berries are held in long, loose clusters and have a sweet, wild Blueberry flavor. In fall, the yellow-orange leaf color adds an artistic brilliance to your landscape or patio. You’ll love the robust, healthy Blueberry!

Planting and Application:

Half-High Blueberries can be used in a number of ways in the landscape. Plant them with ornamental shrubs or pot up into a patio container! It stays compact either way! Use this as an edible landscaping plant in a shrub border at the edge of your property, seating areas or even as foundation plantings.

Perfect for eating fresh with your favorite cereal or cooking up a wonderful batch of Blueberry jam or preserves. Because of its high natural sugar content, you’ll want to use these in sauces, chutneys and salsas, fresh or cooked, but rather than freezing them, try dehydration for a welcome winter snack! Plant a few extra to try all of these ideas, plus more to share with your friends, family, neighbors and still have some to share with local wildlife and songbirds!
